P4D3::Open last file

Issue #197 resolved

created an issue

MacHG supports opening the last opened file after starting, but it does not load the file after opening a new window when all windows were closed (you opened MacHG, worked a little bit, closed it and clicked on the icon in the dock and MacHG does not load the last opened file, which would be really nice).

    Thanks for the report.

    Buttt....

    Do any other programs do this? Is this standard OS X behavior? I have a feeling its not. Correct me if I am wrong and I will definitely look into changing this...

    Thanks! Jas

    I agree with you, it is not the standard OS X behavior, buttt.... I would just be very practical if you work on a project for a longer time (without shutting down your computer). Then it just occurs several times, that you close the MacHG window and you have to open the file again. So: What is about adding the possibility (e.g. in the preferences window) to change between the standard OS X behavior and the - as I think _ for some users more practical behavior?

    Ok thanks for the comments.

    Of course the file is the first thing in the open recent menu so its right there for easy access....

    So your suggested behavior is any time you active MacHg to be the front most application it would open the last used window if a window is not open already? Mail sort of does this already, but Mail doesn't have documents as such it has viewers. Hmmm... I'll think about it :) (Does anyone know of any more supporting evidence to make this change...)

    Do others have this want / need?

    Thanks all...

    Cheers, Jas
