When a Mac user closes a window of an app in Mac OS using the top left red button, the window disappears. Then, if I click on the app symbol in the dock, a mac user expects the window to appear again. 

In contrast, when I close the MySQL Workbench using the top left button, and then I click the MySQL Workbench symbol in the Dock, the window does not reappear.

Current Workaround: Click "View" => "toggle full screen" and then the Window reappears (in full screen).

How to repeat:
Start MySQL Workbench

Close Window using top left red button

Click on MySQL Workbench app symbol in the Mac OS Dock

=> The window does not appear as expected

Suggested fix:
Make sure the "window.appear()" method is called when a "DockSymbol.wasClicked()" event is fired (or something like this)
