Version 6.0 Build 6424 (04/06/2022)

• Fixed: Ingest not preserving path separators in Folder name field when the Code Replacement delimiter is not the platform's path separator.
• Fixed: PhotoDeck upload template two-factor authentication (2FA) failing.
• Fixed: Failure to launch the subsystem that powers Reverse Geocoding can now be skipped/ignored, allowing the rest of the application to function.  See the GPS page of the Preferences dialog to enable the feature and try restarting the app if you wish to try to use Reverse Geocoding again.
• Fixed: SFTP upload template, known_hosts file cannot be created if ~/.ssh folder does not exist.

• Added: Favorites are now able to be exported and imported.
• Added: Automator apps can now be used as Droplets.
• Fixed: When copying files from a folder with trailing space character, PM creates a new folder with the same name but no trailing space character.
• Fixed: Incorrectly handling directories that display a '/' in their name.
• Fixed: Parent and sibling directory syntax (../) creates a folder called '-'.
• Fixed: Single-key color class/rating shortcut keys on keyboards without dedicated number row now work better and do not require pressing other modifier keys.

• Fixed: 'Select Date Range' hangs on images with capture times before 1970.
