when the IDE window is clicked on (into the editor area) when it's not got the focus,
selected text gets deselected.
that's a glitch in the work flow for a Mac user since this is not happening with cocoa.
Is that a Qt thing? (can't verify, no Linux-ish system in reach)

This should be fixed by commit 458eb90.
Please check the upcoming 3.6.2 bugfix release against the issue, and reopen if it is still not fixed.

I'll do - thanks a lot!


Just checked with 3.6.2 - apparently it didn't change.
Same behaviour as reported originally.

Ok, I think the "fix" was incorrect.
I've now fixed the fix, so hopefully this will be solved in the upcoming SC 3.6.3.

Fixed, reportedly.

When another app is active, and you click on a particular split in the IDE, you expect that split to become active.
