Post Catalina - dragging folder onto Yate icon no longer opens it

Maybe I'm missing something but dragging a folder (of audio files) onto Yate's icon (whether in the dock or not) no longer opens that folder in Yate.

Dragging an individual file does work (and will open the containing folder in Yate).

This does seem to be specific to Yate - dragging a folder of files onto other app icons opens that folder in the app.

BTW I'm using the latest release version of Yate - 5.0.1.2.

I'm travelling and my MacBook Pro died on me. I haven't been able to download the release version of Catalina. I'll be back at a working Mac this weekend. If something is broken I'll fix it and issue a patch ASAP.

This is unfortunately another Catalina random change of behaviour. All Yate's document types, including 'folders', are specified exactly as documented. However, the method no longer is reliable for folders! Argh!!!!!

After much random experimentation I managed to get the document type specifications into a format where Catalina seems to allow folders. The fix is in Yate v5.0.1.3 which was released this morning.
