Force Path Finder to switch Spaces upon activation Apps
If you select Path Finder with Command-Tab, or click its dock icon, it often doesn't cause Spaces to switch to a screen with an active Path Finder window in it. Sometimes it will work if you click the dock item twice; sometimes it will never work. This drives me crazy, and I was just about to throw it away and ask for a refund.

Then I tried Command-~ (tilde) once Path Finder was active, and it seems to always switch to a Space with an active Path Finder window (sometimes it will require more than one attempt, but it does always work). Not perfect, but at least you don't have to go looking through all the Spaces until you find a Path Finder window.

Now I just have to take the time to figure out why my bash script to cd the terminal to the selected directory of the front Path Finder window broke with the last update.

Force Path Finder to switch Spaces upon activation

Simple, but helpful--thanks.
I actually use iKey to switch between my most commonly used apps. And the Spaces bug in Path Finder has driven me nuts: from another Space, I'd switch to PF, but then still need to switch Spaces. Since as you've discovered, the Next Window command seems to find the right Space, I just added that to the iKey command for switching to PF. Works like a charm.
