Focus on new tab


Not sure why, but only recently when I open a file from tree view or create a new file, the file is opened in a new tab but you have to manually click on it for the pane to focus on it.
Previously, when you opened a file or created a new one, then the focus automatically switched to the new document.

Looked through settings and couldn’t find any options that relate to my problem and I have tried searching for any related issues but couldn’t find anything to help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


What version of Atom? I can’t reproduce on 1.30.0-beta2. Also, the operating system might be important.


Atom version 1.29.0
OS: Windows 10 Pro, Version 1803 (Build 171.34.228)



Do you click or double-click on a file in the tree-view?
