New “Treat as Path” option for text-based attributes. In “Sort into subfolder” patterns, you can now tell Hazel to treat the attribute as a path, specifying which character to use as the path separator. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with the table feature, where you can specify a column which contains various subfolders to file things into.
