I have an application locked to my launcher. Whenever I click on it or use the normal Exec=..... in the .desktop, it works perfectly. I have recently added a quicklist option in the launcher. Whenever I select this option, it opens the application, but not within the launcher icon. It will open its own instance further down on the launcher. It's not the biggest deal in the world, but I would just prefer to have it open natively in the launcher. Any thoughts?

If a video would help, I can record one.
