Pathfinder will not sort on ascending

I use column view and have been trying to sort by ascending name. PF only shows descending. I have tried using the 'arrange' button and also checked the correct boxes from cmd-j.

Please advise.

    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue persists:

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces via AppCleaner
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. 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, navigate the following path and copy both the preference file and folder to the safe location. 

    ~/Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings (folder) ~/Users/your_username/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist (list)

    Once you re-install your app, replace the new files in the same location with previously saved files.

    Let me know how it goes!
    Best Regards,
