Atom file-open behavior

I’ve been using Atom for over a month and have manage to get used to most of its quirks except for one. All of my projects have multiple files (modules). If I open a file but make no changes to it, then go to open a different file, the new file opens in the previous file’s tab thereby losing my place in the original file.

I’ve looked for settings to change this behavior and looked for an alternative open method in the menus but haven’t found anything.

Does anyone know of a way to change this?


If you double click it will open the file in new tab. If you single click it will often open in the same tab.
