Hi Pathfinder,

I love your product as always. I've more or less fully migrated away from Mac Finder to using path finder. However I have one thing I can't seem to find a solution for.

When I use Spotlight search (which i do often), it opens up the newly searched/ identified folder into the last random tab that's open in Pathfinder. so it could be any tab at any time, which is very inconvenient and annoying.

Is there a way to set it so that when I use spotlight search it either opens a new tab every time, or a whole new window? Either way is better than opening up in an already open tab.

Thanks for your help.
