A new Apple Silicon Mac Mini arrives tomorrow. Will Pathfinder "just work" on it without me doing anything?

    running for me - except I can't see gear wheel icons to adjust settings. The hot spot is there - just can't see the gear wheel. This in Big Sur on both an Intel and an M1 MM. See other discussion in forum reporting this.

    Thank you for the confirmation about PF working (with conditions) on the M1 MM. I like that shorthand designation :)

    Hi everyone,

    Indeed, the issue with cogwheel is already a known one, and we've made sure our developer is informed about this issue.

    If the issue also can be reproduced on your M1 Mac, please send us a sample (a snapshot) of Path Finder process in a separate file? This will enable us to analyze what happens with the application.

    Here's how to get it:
    1. Open Path Finder and reproduce the problem. If the problem is dynamic (e.g. unexpected action result), please try reproducing it during the sample collection.
    2. Open Activity Monitor from the /Applications/Utilities folder.
    3. Select Path Finder in the process list. To help making a selection, type "Path Finder" in the Filter field.
    4. Click the Sample Process button in the toolbar - this will open a new window entitled "Sample of Path Finder" and a sample of the process is collected.
    5. Click Save and save the sample file.
    6. Close (Command-W) the Sample window opened in step 2.
    7. Send the sample file saved in step 5 to us.

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
