Accessing Finder's "Get Info" from PF

Hi, in PF5 there was a setting where you could make it so that Command-I opened Finder's "Get Info" and Command-Option-I opened PF's .... now both Command-I and Command-Option-I give you the same information (but in different style windows).

Is there a way to easily access Finder's "Get Info" without Revealing in Finder first? There's no "Open in 32-bit mode" checkbox in PF's "Get Info," for example.

    This option may have been removed, I'll need to check with the developer.

    Any chance it might be put back in? It's not that big of a deal to Alt-Tab back to Finder to use its Get Info but it was useful to have in PF.

    I too would like to get back the Finder "Get Info". The Finder version provides a Server path to the file that includes the smb info making easy to copy and paste as a hyperlink in emails. The PF6 paths are either from the context of my home folder or have "volume" instead of the smb path.
    An alternative may be to include the smb server path as part of the PF6 Get Info.
