Clicking a link to a page open in a tab should move the focus to that tab

In version 5.1.8 and all previous that I can remember clicking on a link to a page in an open tab would cause VP to move to that tab. In 5.2.2 it no longer does this, clicking on a link to a page that is open in a tab will open a new copy of the document (either in the current tab or in a new tab, depending on preferences). I often have a lot of tabs open and having multiple copies of documents will be confusing. Please restore the old behavior. If people need to open additional copies of pages, then there should be a new option for that.

    Hi millerwbryan,

    Thanks for posting here. Opening a link in a new tab should bring you to the new tab in VoodooPad 5.2.2. Which Mac model and version of macOS are you currently using?

    You mentioned that clicking a link will open a new copy of the document. Could you clarify what you mean by this? Is there a new copy created on your computer?
