I should be able to enter directly the directory path in the File Sharing preference

Expected behaviour

Able to directly enter the path in the options. i.e “/var/lib/rancher”

Actual behaviour

Have to browse using finder and when navigate to “/var/lib/” it redirects to “/private/var/lib” because /var is a alias.

You can configure shared paths from Docker -> Preferences…

trying to add /var/lib to the file sharing, i get a conflict with the /private that’s already there.
