I am using Wing with side-by-side views with the same source file open in both windows. I set a breakpoint in the left window and I single step once BP is reached. When execution advances to code displayed in the right window, single step starts to advance in the right window. I want the left window to be the interactive debug window and the right window to display source code i have selected and to not change during the debug session.

wing IDE did something like this long ago and it was fixed. now seems a related bug is back...

Wing Pro (rev 461ae43a178e+) Final Release

What is the Split Reuse Policy set to in the Preferences dialog's Editor page? I suspect you want the Always Use Current Split option.

For the record, this appears to have been due to the user moving the focus to the other split by accident.
