Can't edit two files open side by side from the same project folder


I have two files open side by side from the same folder. I can’t edit the one on the right without holding the mouse left button all the while. Without holding it simply starts inserting text in the file in the left pane. My problem is similar to this however, the files open in each pane are different.

It seems fine if files from different folders are open side by side. Any thoughts?


Have you tried to see if it works in safe mode (atom --safe)?


It works fine in safe mode. One user pointed from the link discussion in the o.p. pointed out possible focusing issues while using Autocomplete Plus.


The autocomplete-plus package is a core package. It is still active in Safe Mode. If the problem goes away in Safe Mode, that means that it is a community package that is causing the problem.
