With Android 7 on a Sony Xperia X it's not possible to add a path to the sd card. This worked fine in Andoird 6 on the same phone.

When I tap to ../ a message says in my phones language german: "[emulated] Verzeichnis kann nicht gelesen werden!" this means Folder [emulated] cannot be read.

When I tap to / the message says: "[] Verzeichnis kann nicht gelesen werden!".

So it is not possible to quit the internal memory.

Other apps like Oruxmaps the sd card work fine.

It seems as the method Pathaway uses to access the file system is restricted in Android 7. I have a lot of large maps and need to use the sd card!

Is there any workaround?
Will Pathaway change the access method?

Thank's for some hints

Bei mir ist es auch so. Ich habe Scott direkt angeschrieben und er will sich darum kümmern.
Ist evtl. hilfreich, wenn du dich auch direkt an ihn wendest.
