Title

How do you open multiple databases on FMP launch?

Post

How do you get FMP to auto-open files? -- automatically open a certain set of files on launch?

FMP seems to be immune to Lion/Mountain Lion's 'remember open windows next time I launch application' feature. While annoying in some other apps, I really would like it to work, and have the same databases open every time I launch FMP12.

In FMP11 on OSX 10.6, I ended up using an Automator script to generically 'open all files in a folder'. It worked beatifully. Now, with FMP12, it only opens a few of them, then crashes. I've tried having the app open first, and then run the Automator, but it still won't work.

What changed that broke this? Is there another way to do it?

Thanks in Advance!

OSX 10.8, FMP 12.0v2

...also, why was the title of my post changed to "NoFields" !?? I didn't enter that anywhere. Safari 6.0
