Suddenly NC does not "see" Finder favorites anymore [DONE]

Post by warpkanal » Sat Feb 11, 2017 12:02 pm

Running the latest preview build, NC's favorites (Cmd+3) used to work fine.
However suddenly (after changing some external tools and restarting NC) it prints only some folders that look to me like some default settings but not the favorites from finder anymore.

Hmmm, and after a reboot of the machine, NC again correctly sees finder's favorites, strange... is there probably some NC log to see what's going on should that occur again?

Wouldn't it be wise to eventually have an individual Favorites list in Nimble Commander?

Seems like mike was already thinking about creating an NC-dedicated favorites function: http://magnumbytes.com/forum/viewtopic. ... =138&p=784
Would also prefer a dedicated one for the very same argument of the poster in the linked topic: Usually I use the finder favorites esp. because of them appearing in save/open dialogs. These paths do not fully represent my "working" directories I use in NC.

Yep, sometimes these APIs just don't work and AFAIK Apple hasn't offered any substitution.
I definitely have some kind of favorites manager in my mind, but this might require significant amount of work - thus it won't enter the v1.2.0.
