Up until Pathfinder 9 the tag module would auto-fill previous tags. Now I must type each tag in the tag box completely for each file. Pathfinder is not saving previous tags. What setting am I missing? Thank you.

    Hi Rob,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces via AppCleaner
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. Launch Path Finder and move it to the Apps folder as the app suggests

    Please note that the uninstallation disregards all preferences you have set on your end. If you’d like to save them, make sure to navigate to the following path and copy both preference file and folder to the safe location.

    ~/Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings (folder) ~/Users/your_username/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist (list) 

    Once you re-install your app, replace the new files in the same location, with a previously saved files.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
