Description (last modified by slavazanko) (diff)

Would be cool if cursor will moved to copied single file after activating inactive panel. For example, this will be very usefull if need to make some additional actions on single file after copying/moving.

If will copied multiple files, old behaviour should stay.

There was already similar discussion in #1684. Moving selection can be useful or harmful according to user habits or what one currently WANTS to do - thus we can safely assume there's no better or worse solution and people should have the choice. However this shouldn't be made by config option. My suggestion is to take use of quick search similar to #2365 - first ctrl-s (invoking dialog) could move selection to last modified file in that panel (renamed, moved from the other panel etc.), after all it does nothing currently until some second key strike.
