Don't show main window when invoking the quick capture window

#1

Came across this tweet from Drafts, nothing new, but I liked the idea. Tried it. I was expecting just the quick capture window to pop open. I totally agree with @wangye_jay in this thread that it’s an odd experience.

I think apps like Tweetbot and OmniFocus do it right, which is to say, only the quick capture window shows, not that and the main app window. When I want to quickly capture something while working in another app, I wouldn’t want to see the main window.

I hadn’t noticed this, probably because Drafts is generally open here, but I agree that showing just the capture window would be the usual expectation.

Welcome, by the way!
