Interactive debug wont use window split with focus

I am running 7.2.1.2 (rev 0815af1f2ee2) on MacOS 10.14.6 (18G87)

I have two source windows, split side by side. I set a breakpoint in my code and start debug. The execution stops at the breakpoint in the window that does not have focus. If I stop execution, join all splits (so that the window I wish to use to debug remains) and rerun the program, execution stops at the breakpoint but I cannot interact with it. I have to stop debugging, close the program I am debugging, reopen the program I am debugging (in the single source window). Then all works fine.

I wondering if it is easy to make debugging use the source window which has focus when debugging starts?

Thanks.

The split with the focus should be used if the Split Reuse Policy is set to Always Use Current Split. This setting is on the Editor page of the Preferences dialog.

hmmm OK. I checked Editor settings and Split Reuse Policy is 'Always Use Current Split'.

OK thanks for that info. I see a new variation of this... I highlight text in the left split, right-click and select 'Comment Out Region". Text in the window that doesnt have focus gets some text commented out.

https://filebin.net/hpoi8drcfvaiyy9d/... shows text commented in the window that does not have focus
