Duplicate opening of files in split editor panes


I was wondering whether there is a way to avoid opening copies of the same file when working with split editor panes. I often work with two editor panes side by side (with the JuliaPro ‘extension’) and when I click on a file in the overview I would like to have the window contains the open file (if it’s already open) to be activated. But with split editor panes, what happens is dependant on which editor pane is ‘active’, often resulting in a file being open in one pane opening again in the other is that one was active. To avoid that I constantly need to make sure the correct pane is active before selecting a file in the overview, which is kind of a drag.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks in advance,
