When I right click a file in Finder and choose 'Open with...' and select any of the Affinity apps, and that app is already running in full screen, or had been previously, it opens OK but the app continues running in the background, so it appears that nothing has happened. I would expect the computer to switch to the app, as it does with other programs.

I see this behaviour on the Mac with applications other than the Affinity products too. I think it is just that the OS has opened the document but not switched 'Spaces' to the space in which the Affinity (or other application) is running. Frustrating but the document is opened.
