Noticed, the icons appearing on the PF 5 status bar (Toggle Sidebar, Dual Browsers, Toggle Preview, Left Drawer, Bottom Drawer, Right Drawer) are missing from the PF 6 Status Bar. Were they purposely omitted? I find these icons a navigation time-saver.

    I see now the PF 5 status bar icons are located in the PF 6 Toolbar. Any reason for moving them from the status bar?

    It's been a bit challenging figuring out the various changes between PF 5 and 6. While the knowledge base and videos are a good source for specific questions or areas of interest, would be nice to have access to a comprehensive manual explaining the various features of PF 6.

    A redesign of dual pane mode necessitated moving the status bar icons. We now split the status bar into two, one for each separate pane. The status bar also sit above the preview pane instead of at the bottom of the window.

    One of our big goals with Path Finder 6 was to tightly couple related data. By attaching a status bar to the base of each file view pane, we strongly associate this data while allowing other, possibly unrelated panes, to flow around it.
