preview window should close when jumping to tag #184

I love the new preview window functionality! It's nice to be able to quickly see the tag without jumping to it.

But it's annoying when I jump to a tag, that now the tag is displayed in 2 places unnecessarily. The first thing I always do is <C-W>z to close the preview window.

This makes it happen automatically when jumping to a tag and leaving the tagbar window:

Hey, sorry for the late reply! I had been thinking about this over the last few days as I wanted to be sure that this doesn't do anything unexpected, as I wasn't sure whether people may want to keep the preview window open as a guide. But if the autopreview option is enabled it's redundant anyway, and if not then there would be alternatives. Thanks for the patch!
