annoying... PF7 keeps reselecting instead of dragging already selected files

I find it incredibly annoying when I am trying to reorganize files on my Mac using Path Finder. And when I have selected a bunch of files to move to a new folder, when I start to drag them to the new location... much of the time, Path Finder interprets a simple drag as an opportunity to now reselect files instead of dragging the files already selected to the new folder I want them moved to. This is standard operating procedure in Finder. What is the secret sauce to have Path Finder to drag files instead of trying to reselect new ones?

    May I ask you to attach a screen recording of this process? 
    This will enable me to identify whether you are doing anything wrong. 

    To make a screen recording please follow the steps below:
    1. Launch Finder>Applications>Quick Time Player.
    2. Tray Menu>File>New Screen Recording.

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best regards,
