Path Finder 10.2
macOS 12.01 Monterey

If I do a right click and goto Open With, the colour scheme is not very readable in Dark Mode, with dark blue text on a black background.

See attached PNG.

    Hi Carl,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    Could you please specify if you are using Custom or System colors? It can be checked in your Preferences (Command + ,) > Appearance > check if Use System colors is checked. I would suggest unchecking and checking it again, restarting your Path Finder and check if the behavior persists.

    Let me know how it goes!
      Best Regards,

    Path Finder Support Team

    Hi Mary, I am using System colours under macOS 12.01 Monterey set to dark mode. I unchecked the checkbox and reenabled it, and restarted PathFinder. the problem is still occurring.

    Hi Carl,

    I sincerely apologise for such delayed response, I was browsing through old issues and only now this has come to my intention. Sorry about that…

    We're aware of this now and it will be fixed in the next update of Path Finder.

    Thanks for your understanding, support and patience.

    Hi Dragan,

    No worries! It’s only a cosmetic problem and I have been using Path Finder
    very heavily over the last few months!

    I look forward to the next update!
