Can't open more than one .spf file #2294
referenced this issue
Oct 21, 2015
What do you mean by manually?
Opening an SPF file works fine for me. I can even open the same file multiple times to create multiple connection windows (from Finder and from File > Open...).
Try saving the SPF file again with 1.1 and see if that changes anything.
Also, there are "connection" files and "session" files – which do you mean?
By "manually" I mean - entering connection data to the connection form (instead of opening SPF file).
All my SPF files are saved with v. 1.1, and these are 'connection' files.
Take a look at this video https://youtu.be/QZOR8zoMdkQ to see how it happens.
I tried all 3 (Finder, Terminal and PF) - works exactly the same, but since I tested it a bit more I have new clues:
If I close the empty connection window and try to open another spf - it will not work, just opens new empty connection.
So it looks like Apple made a change to the window handling.
When opening a new window, Sequel Pro relies on the new window being in front, which has always been the case in the past.
That is too late for Sequel Pro, which will just take the window that was already open instead and try to restore a connection there (which doesn't work, of course).
Looks like we are not the only ones bitten by that:
Issue fixed in 1.1.1
