I often want to open several files, and then check through them. They may not appear consecutively in Finder or Calibre, so I have to select a few, open them, select more, open them, etc.
Unfortunately, my reading apps take focus as these open, so I have to fight my way back to the Finder or Calibre to select more, open them, etc.
So it would be very helpful to be able to open these in the background, and then go to the reading app when they're done. I saw a previous suggestion to open applications in the background, and tried it as an application and as a service, but couldn't get it to work, even trying different terms such as -ga Clearview instead of --hide.
Any other options?
