Thanks for this awesome app. I love it.

Most of us coders need a text editor, be it notepad or notepadmod or Sublime Text or MS VS Code or MS Word, to have the focus in the editor at launch.

So when opening a saved txt file, we can immediately use the keyboard, shortcuts, arrow_keys, CTRL+C V X, etc.

Please put the cursor focus in editor pane so we can strat typing and using keyboard shortcuts without using the mouse.

This is a standard for most pro txt editors and IDEs.

Thanks again for this great work.

P.S.

This happens when the Right Pane Column, for example: Explorer (showing open files), is pinned open.

It should still put the initial focus, cursor, in the left pane editor window.

Thanks.

Hi Karl,

Thanks for writing.  We are rolling out a new Code Writer build that should have this fixed along with a couple other minor updates too.  Look for v3.3.0029 soon.

Thanks very much.

It also happens often when the right pane column is hidden (not pinned).

Anotrher tiny thing, would be nice with closing last file (window) by CTRL+W, the app also closes. 

This is for example the norm in many top apps like Sublime Text etc. 

It can be default behavior or added as a n option in settings:

[X] Close App with (last) open file

It basically saves fast coders one extra step: ALT+F4

Thanks again for the superb work.
