Improve Tab Behavior



I am not sure where to put this request. So please advise me here.

Imagine a Sublime Text editor with multiple files open in the 2-column layout.

I am working on File A in column left. Now I want to compare it with File B, which is in column left too.
Thus, I drag File B to the right column. What happens now, is that in the left column Sublime Text shows the file which was next to File B. I have to select the File A tab again to read it.

This really bugs me, especially when I have multiple files open because I have to search for File A again.
I know I can go with the ctrl + P search, but sometimes a simple drag and drop is quicker.

Wouldn’t it be nice, Sublime Text would remember the last File selected before the drag’n’drop?

Let me know what you think.



Maybe try Origami?

Didn’t know that. Thank you I will check it out.

edit: Origami is a nice Plugin but it does not solve my problem.
