Often i want to open two or more files to compare them, but Atom has a tendency to displace the file i just opened with the other file i then click on, instead of opening both and putting them each in a tab.
I have tried closing a few tabs when this happens, as there are often more open than needed, but it doesn’t seem to help. I can’t figure out how it is deciding when to open a series of files and give each one a tab, and when to close a tab and replace it with another. Maybe it is when i click on two files one soon after the other? At any rate, if i have two panes open and switch between them before requesting the 2nd file, that helps, but only because then something i’m not immediately interested in gets displaced.
I can’t see where to adjust this behaviour. Can i get it to stop doing this? Sometimes it can be convenient, but it is definitely something i’d rather choose to do on occasion, rather than it being done automatically.
