Subl opens blank windows on macOS


Sublime: 3.2.2 build 3211
macOS 15.2

Trying to open a Sublime workspace from the command line:

subl -n --project ~/blah.sublime-workspace.

If the workspace is not currently open, then sublime opens the workspace up just fine in a new window and make it active focus. Nice :slight_smile:

However, if the workspace is already open, either in the background or foreground, then the expected behavior of switching focus to the open workspace does not happen. Instead Sublime creates a new blank window and sets the focus to that blank file.

After googling I see this bug has been around for years and quite a few mentions on here and Stackoverflow.
