Even easier Finder folder reveal in Path Finder
Authored by: lujo on Apr 24, '09 08:08:24AM

Path Finder has a built-in application/script for revealing Finder folders in Path Finder via a Finder window toolbar icon. There are two ways to implement this with the first being the easiest (but unreliable to implement) and the second option pretty easy, too, and certain to work.

First option. In Path Finder, from the Help menu, select "Reveal in Path Finder Toolbar item" and a gray floating window appears. Now open a Finder window and drag the Path Finder icon from the floating window to the Finder window's toolbar. You can try holding Command during the drag if a simple drag doesn't work. In my experience this procedure only works occasionally on some computers. So...

Second option. The above "shortcut" simply points to an application in Path Finder's application package called Reveal. Go to Path Finder.app/Contents/Resources/Reveal.app (use "Show Package Contents" to browse the application package) and then Command-drag the Reveal application onto a Finder window's toolbar and you're set.
