May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists:
Delete Path Finder and its traces via AppCleaner
Download the latest version of the app from our site
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.
Mary . . . Thank you for responding. I followed your instructions "to a T",
and succeeded to get the new download up with all of my preferences intact.
That was good. However, the module pane still does not accept a mouse
click, or, at least, nothing happens when I click on any of the modules in
it, as before. :-(
You mentioned that you click on module window to activate your module. It is programmed in Path Finder that clicks on module buttons would not activate the module. You need to drag-and-drop your module to any of the Shelves to activate them.
Could you please confirm that drag-and-dropping also did not work for you?
If it did not, 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.
Thank you. That solved it. I don't know how I got it into my head that one
clicks on the modules to activate them. Could it be that in previous
versions it worked that way? Chock it up to a septuagenerian using modern
tech . . . Thanks again . . . FW.
It's sad to find the 'find' function so dysfunctional; or at least so
arcane in its operations to foil a user's attempt to, well, use the
Here's the screenshot of what did not happen, along with another of a
different program who found it in an instant.
User error always a possibility.
It seems like you have inputted incorrect queries. As per the screenshot you have provided, you wanted to search for a pdf file named Ramakrishna, while in another one I can see that it is a folder that consists of some files in it.
In this case, I would suggest using Old style search, input your Name as Ramakrishna, and set type to Folder to achieve the searching result you want to receive.
Should you have anything else you’d like to address, please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.
