In order for me to best assist you could you make a screen
recording of the issue and send it to us.
To make a screen recording please follow the steps below:
1. Launch Finder>Applications>Quick Time Player.

I believe this info is going to help us a lot, thank you for
Here is the screen recording.
Hopefully it's clear that when i switch between PathFinder / Spotify /
Illustrtrator the PF window stays active in the foreground.
Looking forward to your feedback on this issue. I recently updated PF but
not my Mac OS. Incompatibilities between the 2 versions?
*Show Path Finder desktop* setting is ON
NB. I toggled between the two after receiving this message and it doesn't
make any difference. (maybe it needs a restart to alter the prefs though?)
Mission Control settings are attached. FYI, i don't actively use 'Spaces'
if that info helps.
I have the exact same issue. I CMD+TAB back to a text app for instance, and when I continue typing I realize that even though there's only the text app, Path Finder process is focused (without a window) and I'm actually sending it the keystrokes.
So EVERY TIME I switch apps back and forth I have to click first the app so it's in focus, so I can use it.
This bug has been around forever. Thanks for posting about the workaround. I might actually purchase the upgrade to v8 since this workaround works; however, I really love the PathFinder desktop. It's nice to not have to also have Finder running while using PathFinder and I also find the PathFinder desktop visually looks better to me.
