Hey, that is a feature that I and have used for years.
Side by side directories with the preview on top.

C'mon programmers do some magic.

    Cocoatech support.... please be upfront went major features have been
    stripped out of the software.
    No way in this green earth am I willing to upgrade when the core is gutted.

    Hi DAVID,

    Thanks for reaching out to Path Finder support team!

    The thing is, the UI component, that provides Cover Flow has never been publicly available to developers outside Apple, but, like many others, we found a way to reverse-engineer it and include it in Path Finder. However, the whole (private) framework, which internal part Cover Flow is, is deprecated as of macOS 10.14 Mojave. Hence, it still worked there. 

    But in Catalina and further versions, Cover Flow exercises some weird behavior and it's impossible to track any pattern. For some users preview of flies in Cover Flow works fine all the time, for some it works fine but not always, for some it doesn't work at all, or is very jerky and with a lot of delays. And there's no way we can fix that. 

    In conclusion, it's not the version of Path Finder causing the problem, but the version of macOS. I'm sorry I don't have anything better to say regarding this Cover Flow issue, but it is what it is.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
