The UI/UX behavior for how replit “stacks” sub-windows that correspond to files has changed ina bad way. Opening a 2nd file obscures console window if the console window has focus.
If I have a repl with multiple files, and I start with a main.xxx file open at the top, and console at bottom (or side for example)…
If I click on a 2nd file while the console has focus, it opens the second file OVER the console window-, now obscuring the console. Though I can see 2 files, I now have to grab and drag the 2nd file window “out of the way” to see my console. (or reclick my console tab
Since I am constantly checking input and output files in my repl (for example) while running my program, I am constantly needing to “unhide” the console.
This just throws another usability “friction point” at replit users who are actively producing data and/or considering multiple code files.
Expected vs Current Behavior:
The console is “special” and should not be obscured when opening a 2nd file. The 2nd File should be “stacked” like it always has been on one of the other windows, rather than on the window that has focus.
Steps to reproduce:
