Path Finder alias

I just upgraded to Path Finder 6 and now the Path Finder alias' that I created don't work. Also, I am not able to create a new Path Finder alias with version 6. To be clear, what I want to do is create an alias (shortcut) so that Path Finder automatically opens the linked folder.

    Path Finder Aliases were removed in v6. You just have regular aliases and symbolic links.

    Thank you for your reply.

    In v5 you could go to Path Finder Preferences > Reveal and check 'set path
    finder as the default file viewer.' Is this no longer an option? Is
    there any way to get an alias (or some sort of shortcut to a folder) to
    open in Path Finder rather than Finder?

    Sure, enable Preferences > General > Set as the default file browser and Preferences > Browser > Reveal in Path Finder: (your favorite option).

    Then just drag any folder to the Dock, don't need to create an alias first (like dragging a folder to Places in the Sidebar).
