“Open main window” toggles all windows

Testing version:
Version 2.0 (11586)
(Tho, this has been a problem for the entire existence of Bear)

What were you doing:
Hitting my shortcut for “Open main window” defined in Settings (in my case ⌃⌥Space)

What feature did you use:
Open main window.

What happened:
It toggles all Bear windows, not merely the main one.

What did you expect to happen:
Only opening the main one, instead of opening all the windows.

Suggested changes:

  1. Change the wording to ”Toggle main window” as that’s what it actually does (and that’s a good thing), since hitting it when Bear is open makes it disappear. This functionality is good tho, just the wording is a bit inaccurate.
  2. Make it so only the main Bear window toggles, not all of them. This would not only be more correct with regards to the phrasing, but it would be incredibly useful to many workflows. I often have a Bear window where I’ve opened up a note I need to focus on, but often I need to look something up in my other notes, and it would be so great if I could do that with that handy main window shortcut. Right now I can’t because it toggles all the windows. Another use case is if I have many Bear windows open, I’m somewhere else, and I want to look something up quickly. Again, for quickly looking things up I only need the main window and making the other windows appear is detrimental to that workflow.
