Using "Open File" to open multiple databases

I've created an Opener database with buttons linking to several other databases located on the clients FileMaker Server. For the most part, everything looks good (e.g., clicking a button will open one of the databases as expected). However, if I want to open another database (while the original is still open), instead of opening the database it simple goes to the window for the first open database.

 

Example 1: Click DB1 opens DB1. Click DB2 go to DB1 window.

Example 2: Click DB1 opens DB1. Close DB1. Click DB2 opens DB2.

 

If I close/reopen the Opener it will open DB2 even if DB1 is still open, but I'm hoping for a solution that doesn't require reopening the Opener database.

 

I've tried it with FMPA 17.0.2.205 on macOS 10.13 and same FMPA on Windows 10.

 

Thanks for any help.
