I guess it is ok, when I installed Path Tools I got an intimidating warning that the software's authenticity could not be assured because it was unsigned.

Why is Path Information So Guarded?
The other thing I am wondering is why so much effort went into the base product to insure that paths cannot be copied. I found properties that display the path, but that text cannot be highlighted and copied. It appears deliberate.

Thank you. Very helpful and bug free. I would like to suggest a feature. Allow one of the format to be selected as the default behavior.
