Hiya,

I've got several global shortcuts to open apps, as you do, but I'd like a couple of them to notice if an app is already open and just Bring-To-Top rather than open another instance.
There's if-then logic involved here, so I'm assuming some sort of script would be necessary, assuming it's possible in the first place. Any ideas from more Plasma-savvy people than myself?

Plasma 5.15.4, Plasma Frameworks 5.56.0, Ubuntu 19.04

i'd be interested in this as well. if i press a short cut to a program thats already open it should eith not open a new instance, tell me i already have a instance open, or bring to program to the forefront.
