Just now I find myself involved in a somewhat funny problem in using the combination of Sublime Text 3 (ST3) and SumatraPDF.

I use LaTeXTools in ST3. Normally, when the source file is finished in compilation without any errors, the generated PDF file will prompt in SumatraPDF; however, my situation is more than that because there is an extra activity: it immediately returns to the ST3 window (without a double-click to request inverse search).

Any one has encountered this problem? Or any one knows how to prevent the extra movement?


There's a LaTeXTools setting called keep_focus that you'll need to change to false to stop this from happening. You can access the settings by selecting Preferences > Package Settings > LaTeXTools > Settings – User.

  • Cool! So it is not a problem but just one of some updated default settings of LaTeXTools? – Αλέξανδρος Ζεγγ Sep 27 '16 at 1:45
  • Something like that. – ig0774 Sep 27 '16 at 11:20
