Description Vladimir Riha 2012-08-02 12:18:38 UTC
To reproduce
- run file => tab "tabA" is opened in browser
- open some other tabs (e.g. looking for more information on internet...) => tabA is "not active", not in the foreground
- run/save file again => "tabA" is not focused so you have to find it

I don't know if it is possible to focus the tab again. If not, you can stop reading here :)

I know that running file again makes probably no sense thanks to refresh on save, but it is kind of strong habit and I would expect to see the "tabA".

Focusing the tab after saving the file in IDE is more real world example on the other it could be disruptive because not always user wants to see the "tabA" so perhaps some project settings for that could help

I think this is more like a enhancement
