How do I make Skim pop up after a build for a LaTeX-document in Sublime Text 2, while using LaTeXTools? Currently, Skim opens or refreshes the window but stays in the background.


There's a configurable option in LaTeXTools called keep_focus that controls this.

  • To permanently stop it, you can set keep_focus to false in your LaTeXTools.sublime-settings file (which you can find in the menu: Preferences -> Package Settings -> LaTeXTools -> Settings - User).

  • To temporarily switch to having Skim move to the foreground, use the keyboard toggle, which is three key strokes (cmd + l, t, f).
