Bug report #1894
Opening project file with 2x click or drag to dock icon does not work (OS X)
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||OS X||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||fixed|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||11954|
In the current trunk, trying to open a qgis project file by dragging it onto the application icon in the dock (qgis already open) does not open the project. Likewise, double clicking a project file if qgis is already running does not work. If qgis is not open, double clicking a project file or dragging to the application icon in the Finder opens qgis and loads the project correctly.
Turning off the older qgis version warning in the general settings does not correct the issue. Neither does saving the file.

Do you have multiple copies of Qgis installed? Maybe Open With is showing another copy.
To check that your current Qgia is not broken, Show Package Contents on your current Qgis app, then dig into Contents and open Info.plist. There should be a Document Types array, and the Qgis project document should be one. It should have a CFBundleTypeExtensions key with qgs as the value.
