Working on a file in code view.
Hit cmd+s to save
Hit shift+cmd+u to upload changes
Once uploaded, code view of file is deselected. If I click once, the cursor shows up, but anything I type doesn't affect any change in the code. In order to continue editing the file, I have to click again on the code and then the cursor begins blinking and I can edit my code. This also occurs if I select a portion of the code. It will highlight, but I cannot edit it until it has been clicked on again.
This interrupts my workflow because I'm very used to clicking once to begin editing a file and at times I'll quickly notice a change, click once and begin trying to delete the code at the cursor, or some code I've selected. This brings up a prompt asking if I want to delete the selected file in the files window, or it will inform me that I cannot delete the root folder of my site. This is disconcerting, even to someone like me who creates backups before they start making edits.
I also verified that this only occurs in code view, in design view, I only have to click once to return to editing.

The 'focus' within the application has been a known issue with 12.0 and 12.1 builds of DW.
The focus is held with the last used panel within the app - for instance, Shift + Cmd + U (upload files) enables the 'Files' panel, hence leaving focus there after your upload command has been executed.

This issue has been fixed in CCM update 12.2. Please update to this latest release.
