WeBuilder "find" tab focus

Postby dMole » Tue Dec 17, 2019 4:02 pm

There is a problem with find focusing when using 3 tabs (haven't tried 2 tabs). I have 3 files opened - 2 in split screen and 1 on another monitor. When I press "Find next", WeBuilder searches in wrong tab even if another window is active and cursor put to that window. For example:
1. I edit file in Tab A.
2. I click on code inside Tab C and cursor is blinking there, filename in the top of the tab is highlighted.
3. I press "Find next"
4. It finds next occurance in Tab A! <---
5. I click on code inside Tab C again
6. I press "Find next"
7. Finally it finds next occurance in Tab C

So, it starts to find in Tab C only after second click on the Tab C. It happens all the time.

Have done some additional testing. If you split ONE screen into 2 or 3 tabs - everything is ok. But when you undock one of the tabs (in my case I drag one of the tab to another monitor) - this bug appears. Moreover, this bug appears only when you try to find on undocked tab - it still searches main screen tab. Otherwise everything is ok. You can test it even on default Untitled1.html by creating 2-3 copies in different tabs and trying to find "head" for example.

1. I create untitled2.html and drag it to another screen, leaving untitled1.html on main screen. Press ctrl-F and type "head" i.e.
2. Switch to untitled1.html and press couple of spaces or whatever.
3. Switch to untitled2.html - cursor is blinking there. Press Find next and it will find <head> in untitled1.html!!!
4. Switch again to untitled2.html and press Find next and it will work fine.
