No result from open command

I’ve noticed that the open command in SD does not return a result.

In most apps the of the open command is a reference to the document/window/tab that opened. For SD 6 and 7 it’s “missing value”.

on open (itemList)
   local thisScript
   repeat with thisItem in itemList
      tell application "Script Debugger"
         set thisScript to open thisItem
      end tell
   end repeat
end open

–> Script Debugger 7.0 (7A33)
–> Script Debugger 6.0.8 (6A221)
–> Mac OS 10.11.6 (15G19009)

Yes, I see the problem. If the document is already open, then the open command is returning missing value. if the document is not already open then a reference to the newly opened document is returned.

Just a note: any application built with Cocoa Scripting fails to return a result for its open, move and duplicate commands.

Yup, just figured that out and was about to report it, but you beat me to it!
