Finder opens when dragging a picture-file onto the dock icon

Is something not working like it should? Let us know.

Using Pixelmator Pro v. 1.1.4.
When I drag a picture from the finder unto the Pixelmator Pro icon in the dock, the picture opens in Pixelmator Pro obviously. But just before it opens, a finder window appears jus like when I hit File - Open. This is rather annoying because I don't want to open a file from the finder because I already opened my file by dragging it to the dock icon.
Is this a bug or a setting I can adjust.

Thank you

Hi meh. Could you check if you have the same issue with the latest version of Pixelmator Pro? Version 1.1.5? Thanks!

Hey there, if you haven't done so already, could you email us at about this?

Mail has been send just now.

One other thing: the finder window as described above opens a folder (let’s call it folder A) that I last saved a file to.
When I open a new file by dragging it onto the Pixelmator icon and I save that file to another folder (let’s call it folder B) and I open a new file again by dragging it onto the Pixelmator Pro icon which I want to save by clicking file export, I expect Pixelmator to open folder B because that’s the last folder I saved the previous file to. Unfortunately Pixelmator opens folder A.

Just thought I'd chime in and say that this happens to me most of the time as well. Mac version here 1.2.1 Quicksilver.

This is a known bug and not one that we've figured out how to fix, unfortunately. However, we're working on it, so hopefully, it won't be too long before a fix is available.
