Cannot open files from Finder w/ SPSS open

    I cannot open SPSS files by double-clicking them in Finder after the application is already launched (using MacOS Catalina). In order to open files when SPSS is already open, I have to open them from within the SPSS application itself by going to File > Open. How do I resolve this issue?

    If Statistics is already running, double clicking from the Finder normally starts a new Statistics session.  It works this way in order that the newly opened file not disrupt any job already running, especially for production mode jobs.
