Pane behavior after window focus is lost on Windows 8


If you alt-tab or otherwise change focus from the Atom window, when you come back you are unable to edit inside of panes until you manually click inside of a pane. Likewise, shortcuts to switch between panes do not work until you click inside of a pane.


I have the same issue. It looks like you simply can’t get back into editing without touching the mouse. It’s very annoying when switching to terminal/browser and back.


Have you followed the steps in the Debugging document? Also, can you include the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you running?
  • What OS and version you’re using?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting with atom --safe?


I can no longer reproduce the behavior (0.115.0, Windows 8.1 Ent x64). Must have been glitch, or it could have gone away due to last updates I installed.


Tried it a few times on v116, Win8 as well, can’t reproduce it either.


Seems like this works fine in latest update.
