Hello,

I've started using a second editor pane lately and I can't figure out how to permanently set the default editor to the left-hand pane.

According to the manual, whichever editor has the blue heading will be the one affected by actions. But when I click on the pane, which makes the header blue, and then go click on a document in the binder, it always opens in the right editor.

I see there is a menu item to swap editors, which does swap the two editor panes. But it does not change the behavior of clicking the document in the binder opening in the right pane.

I've tried locking the editor, but that doesn't do it either.

How can I just set it somehow so that documents automatically open on the left instead of the right?

Thanks!!

I finally figured it out by accident. I'll post how to do it in case anybody else wants to know.

Go to NAVIGATE -> BINDER SELECTION AFFECTS -> LEFT EDITOR
