Opening Scribus .SLA files. Mac vs. Windows.
« on: September 24, 2020, 05:40:10 pm »
Using Scribus 1.5.6

On a mac:
- If I double click a .sla file, it opens the scribus document.
- If I try to open the same doc again, it tells me its already open.
- If I close down the .sla doc (not exit scribus), and then open another .sla doc, it opens the new doc in the same scribus.

All good so far and performs as expected.


On a Windows machine:
- If I double click a .sla file, it opens the scribus document.
- If I try to open the same doc again, it opens a new instance of scribus.
- If I close down the .sla doc (not exit scribus), and then open another .sla doc, it opens a new instance of Scribus. So now I have one scribus open with no doc, and another scribus open with the new doc I just opened.

The last two items on the windows side mentioned seem like unusual behaviour, is there a preference someplace that, at the very least will open the .sla doc in the already opened version of scribus?
