This is going to be less detailed than I would usually like to provide a developer as I encounter bugs, but the issues I’m experiencing are rather inconsistent and diverse, so I just need to give an overall indication of the growing number of problems I’m having with Total Finder in Catalina.
I’m been using Total Finder for YEARS! And I don’t want to imagine going without it. However, the new OS from mac is really messing with the stability of the software. Since upgrading to Catalina, I’ve had multiple and on-going issues with the finder window, especially the visor pane, but standalone windows also.
Dual window mode flips on and off randomly. New windows always open in visor (even when they shouldn’t) or never open in visor (even when the should). Tabs get loaded and duplicated and unloaded. The Pin/Maximize/Minimize/Close buttons get cut off with some kind of weird flat gray overlay. Non-visor windows get confused and open fullscreen-width at the bottom of my laptop screen with only the nav bar showing. It’s all very fitful and complicated.
And now suddenly today, I’m unable to get the visor window to work at all. My keystroke won’t work. I’ve tried modifying preferences to reset it. I relaunched finder and relaunched TotalFinder. It done broke! I know this may not be very helpful in trying to locate the source of the problems, but at least this can be a log that I and perhaps others are experiencing real problems with mac’s latest finder updates.
Thanks for a wonderful product! And I hope apple’s messing around with their finder doesn’t mean the death knell of TotalFinder because it is still a superior experience.
