I've had this "problem" ever since for several Mac OS versions and just now went from FMP 7 to 10 and it hasn't changed.
When I open the application or an already existing FMP file, whether from the applications folder or the file stored on the right side of the dock, the application icon will open in the dock and bounce until I click on it. This is usually because I open the file then switch back to what I was doing before while FMP opens. Why won't FMP open in the background like every other Mac application?
I've searched for this problem on the internet and this forum and I'm surprised I can't find anything on it. Thanks for any replies!
