Click to gain focus should also place caret
« on: October 06, 2016, 10:51:37 am »
Hi,

I have noticed a big annoyance in HE: if HE doesn't currently have the focus AND you click somewhere in the text editor window, the only thing that happens is that HE gets the focus - the caret doesn't ALSO move to where you clicked.

This has made me type into the wrong place multiple times. This seems to be a behaviour exclusive to HE... don't remember any other editor ever doing this.

It is not a bug, but a feature was requested some when.
Here are details and way to control it:

Many thanks - I've changed the setting so it does what I want.  :)

Still, I must say that I have never seen an editor that DOESN'T move the caret, so I fail to see how anyone would expect this behaviour in the first place :P
