Navigating backwards and forwards

Steps to reproduce

There are hot keys to switch between the different panes. Called navigate back and navigate forwards.

When you do you see a highlight moving from one pane to the other pane.

  • Select the left pane and have your cursor be ready to write something.
  • Navigate forwards to the next pane. You can see the highlight at the top of the pane.
  • Write something.

You’ll end up writing something in the left pane even though the right pane is the pane that is active.

Expected result

When you write something in the active pane it will happen in the active pane and not somewhere else.

Actual result

After switching pane, the cursor doesn’t follow but stays in the inactive pane.
