I’ve noticed that when launching Sublime from a terminal window on MacOS has an odd behavior. After closing the Sublime editor window, focus does not seem to return back to the terminal window for some reason.
- open a terminal
- launch Sublime from the terminal (ie: “subl .”)
- close the Sublime editor (ie: mac+q on MacOS)
The original terminal window should now be active
None of the active application windows are now active, so the user is forced to click on the window they were using or use a task-switch shortcut (ie: mac+tab on MacOS) to get back to the window they were using
This sounds like a minor problem, but for users like me that spend 8 hours a day, every day, working from the shell, having to constantly switch back and forth between windows like this every time I launch my editor is tedious at best. In fact, this is one of several reasons that I tend to not use Sublime text for many of my daily needs. Every other text editor or IDE that I use has this default behavior, so the problem is definitely isolated just to Sublime (ie: this is not an OS wide problem).
