Hey Mark & Shane,
Script Debugger 7.0.8 (7A80) on OSX 10.12.6
Script Debugger 5.0.12 (707) on OSX 10.12.6
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a new script like so:
tell application "Calculator" | ⇠ cursor end tell
Click the “File” menu with the mouse pointer.
Calculator launches in the background.
This is true for all apps I’ve tried: Evernote, TextExpander, Safari, Calculator.
Also – with Script Debugger 7.0.8 I can sometimes get the app to launch by clicking the “Help” menu or by hitting Cmd-Shift-? to bring up the “Help” menu search field.
I nearly always use keyboard shortcuts for menu items, so this is the first time I recall ever seeing this behavior…
