PF 7 shelves don't like High Sierra on Macbook Touchbar

Have been using PF for years. I am currently using the latest version 7.6.2. I've upgrade both my iMac and Macbook 13 w/ Touchbar to High Sierra. No problems with the iMac. However with the Macbook I've encountered a problem with PF's shelves, both the bottom and right shelf. When I highlight a file, with the shelf active, PF attempts to continuously access the file, previews of the file flash on and off, and interestingly, my DropBox menu bar Icon also flashes on and of indicating that it is responding to whatever it is PF is doing. If I disable the shelf, or close the PF window, the issue disappears. So, obviously something is going on. Reading through the discussion logs, it seems that similar issues have been reported. I have followed the instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling PF. No luck. For the time being I've simply removed the shelf from the window. Any idea when this issue might be fixed?

    Hi Raymond, 

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    I'd suggest waiting for a new version of PathFinder at this point. 
    It's currently scheduled for April and going to be re-written from a scratch. 

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,
