Hi,

I've tried to select files in the symbol view by selecting a file on top, holding shift and then I want to select a file somewhere.
My expected behavior was, that all files between will be selected (like in the list view), but it selected only the selected item.

This makes this view very useless when you try to prepare for example photos to sort them on an external device into directories.

Greetings

    Hi Ragin,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    First of all, thanks for providing us with your feedback! I have passed it to our developer for further development consideration.

    At this moment this is the expected behavior that you get using View as Icon display, similar to one in Finder. We do not have any plans to change the logic of this feature in the nearest future, but we'll review your feedback with the developer accordingly.

    Should you have anything else I can help you with today, please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,
    Mary

    Thanks for the answer.
    Maybe it is possible to add a configuration switch for that behavior ;).

    The reason why I have bought Path Finder is that it is NOT Finder ;).
    So a little courage to be different can't hurt if you want to stand out ;).
