Pathfinder seems to interfere with dock auto-hide in Monterey (beta build 21C5039b, 16-inch MBP M1 Max)

After 30-60 minutes the dock will not re-appear when the cursor moves to the bottom of the screen.

Quitting Pathfinder does not solve the problem.

Restarting and NOT opening Pathfinder solves the problem.

    Hi Keith,

    Danilo from Path Finder support here!

    I'd like to apologize for the late reply. Could you be so kind as to specify whether the same issue still persists? If it does, I would like to suggest Reinstalling Path Finder and reengaging your Dock Auto-Hide preference.

    In order to reinstall Path Finder, follow the steps below: 

    Go to the Applications Folder in Finder > Find, drag and drop Path Finder into the Trash bin > find the PF(number).dmg file in your downloads folder > drag it to the Trash bin as well > Clear the Trash bin > Navigate to our website and re-download Path Finder > Install it on your Mac by dragging it to the applications folder > Try to reproduce the issue.

    In order to reengage the Dock Auto-Hide preference, follow the steps below:

    Click on the Apple Icon in the top left corner of the screen, then choose System Preferences. On the new System Preferences window, select Dock. On the Dock window, uncheck and check the Automatically hide and show the Dock option to your preference.

    Afterwards, let us know whether the issue still persists so we can navigate you further.

    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.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
