I recently attempted to make a change to the appearance of my copy of Pathfinder 6. It didn't respond the way I had anticipated. No problem, I'll go to the "help" file and figure out why. When I click on the help file, it takes me to the cocoatech pathfinder support page where there is no help file and I must waste time examining other people's problems trying to find someone who has the same problem I have. This is terribly wasteful of my time. Where can I find a "help" file that describes the features of the program and more importantly, describes the function of each choice under the "preferences" window. Most are obvious, but some are vey much not so.

    As a fellow user, all I can tell you is that Cocoatech chose screencasts over written documentation. You can check them here.

    Now, can I help you with your preferences?

    Under Pathfinder 6.1.1 Preferences/Appearances, there are two items to choose fonts. One is "Sidebar" and the second is "List Modules". When I change the font to Sidebar, sure enough, it changes the font to the sidebar. When I change the font to List Modules, it appears to do nothing. I want to change the font in the screen where the files are displayed. I would have assumed that "List Modules" would be the "function" that did that. Apparently not so. I went to find the "documentation" to see what "List Modules" actually was and hit a blank wall. I did a search on the Cocoatech site and came up with nothing. Can you feel my frustration?

    What is "List Modules" and how do I change the font to the files displayed in the main window of Pathfinder?

    best regards,
    Dennis

    List Modules changes the font size on Window > Modules which use file listings such as Favorite Folders or Shelf.

    To change the font size in the browser itself just go into View > Show View Options. There's a button there to change the font face/size.

    Why do I get "notifications" in OS X 10.8.2 that Pathfinder moved files? Can I turn this off?

    You can turn Growl notifications off in Growl's preferences. The same goes for all apps which use Growl. Not sure about Notification Center since I'm on Lion. Cheers.
