 Interestingly, in most cases just going through the above steps to collect the required information also makes the problem disappear.  That probably has to do with the reboot and order of operations. Interestingly, in most cases just going through the above steps to collect the required information also makes the problem disappear.  That probably has to do with the reboot and order of operations.

 +===== Macintosh OS X, Zerene Stacker will work on only one stack at a time =====
 +
 +Solution: open a Terminal window and launch additional copies of Zerene Stacker using the command 
 +<code>
 +open -n /Applications/ZereneStacker.app 
 +</code>
 +
 +If you put the ZereneStacker icon (the ZereneStacker.app application bundle) someplace besides in /Applications, then just edit the command line accordingly.
 +
 +The explanation here is that by design, Zerene Stacker is programmed using the "single document" model.  This means that each instance of Zerene Stacker can only work with one stack at a time.  The normal process of launching Zerene Stacker by clicking its icon will not launch a second instance.  Instead, clicking the icon just makes the current instance foreground, apparently in the expectation that all programs are multi-document.  Unfortunately there seems to be no way to just tell MacOS that Zerene Stacker is single document and it should launch another instance when the launch icon is clicked.  The "-n" argument on the open command says to create a new instance regardless of whether there's already one running.
