Weird issue when same file is open in two panes


I do all of my work with two vertical panes. Sometimes I find myself accidentally editing a file without realizing I have it open on the other side of the screen.

I’ve noticed that when this happens, Atom seemingly has trouble knowing what to do and which pane to do it in. It’s a little hard to explain so I recorded a video (which you’ll probably want to watch in HD):

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

Related to this?


Yes, I think last comment of the original poster of that issue is what this is as well:

The issue I was having originally was when I moved the cursor in one of the panes and the edits were reflected in two different places in the same file


Are you using Autocomplete Plus (or something similar)? It has some issues with focus.
