I know this is supposed to be a feature, but it wastes so much time. When I close the program, I want it to forget the files I had open in that session (I.e., not re-open them when I re-open the program). I COULD NOT find anything on this by Googling. Can you help?

Thanks!

Hey Chris, that's actually a macOS setting that Pixelmator respects. You can find it in System Preferences > General. There are two relevant settings: "Ask to keep changes when closing documents" and "Close windows when quitting an app". I've got them both turned on, for example, whereas by default I think at least one of them is disabled.

I thank you SO much on this! It makes sense that it is not a Pixelmator thing, but I just had no idea how to turn this off.

Thanks!

Chris
