Thanks Lee.
Another very helpful tutorial for an app with which I was not familiar. I have used Alfred for quick searches, Houdah for deep, obscure searches, Forklift for dual pane copying, and Yep! for tag and comment management for groups of files. Each app has its own strengths for specific purposes.
Path Finder has a lot of features I like, but one questionable feature is Tags. Path Finder shows existing tags, but it looks like if I want to add a tag to a file I need to type it manually. Path Finder does not seem to pull in the full list of existing Tags, so it looks like I need to re-enter all my Tags to Path Finder's "Tag Groups" window. Is there a way to import my Tag list from Finder into Path Finder's Tag Groups?
