Syncing Tags between Finder and PathFinder

I have created a few tags in Finder to organize my files. I thought that PathFinder will sync those tags from time to time. But I see the PathFinder tags are not in sync with Finder ones.

Can you please let me know how to sync tags between Finder and PathFinder?

    Hi Kamesh,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    There is no way to sync tags from Finder to Path Finder since PF already "reads" the tags you have created prior. While they are not added to PF's tag groups immediately, they can be easily pulled up and auto-completed while file tagging. 

    Please note that once you tag a file with a Finder tag in PF, it will then be displayed in the tag cluster within Sidebar. Unfortunately, it is not possible to add it there before tagging.

    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
