Clicking in a panel doesn't focus it but clicking on its "tab" at the top does focus it.  This shows when switching from one panel to another, and pressing Cmd+R, for example, to start reading aloud - reading starts in the "old" (previously "focused") panel, even though the new panel is shown in the front.  The same applies to switching to Paged View, etc.  To reproduce, float two panels and dock them next to one another, then click on the *tab* of the one to focus it, then click into the *body* of the second panel.  Now press Cmd+R, etc and you'll (I hope) see that reading aloud starts in the wrong panel.

The visual (very difficult to see, but still "visual") focus border drawn around the focused panel indicates that the focus does not shift when clicking inside the body of a resource but only when clicking on its tab.

I've been trying to reproduce this but haven't been able to so far.  I wonder if anyone else is seeing this problem.

You can try the following:

Open two Bibles (ESV, NASB, say) in two tabs.  Float both panels (that is, ESV into one floating panel, NASB into another floating panel).  Drag the NASB panel and "dock it" into the floating ESV panel - so that it is docked to the right of the ESV panel - that is ESV on left, NASB on right.  Now click on the NASB tab and press Cmd+Shift+P to switch to paged-view.  Now click in the left-hand (ESV) panel - not on the ESV tab but in the body of the ESV panel.  Press Cmd+Shift+P and you'll see that the ESV panel isn't affected, but instead the NASB panel.  In my case, the NASB panel still has the gray focused-border.  In order to actually focus the ESV panel I have to explicitly click on the ESV panel's tab.

If you still cannot reproduce this behaviour I can, perhaps, create another screencast - although I'd rather not unless absolutely required as it's a time-consuming process.

Thanks for repeating the steps in more detail. I was able to reproduce it this time. I had floated them and put them in same panel, but hadn't placed them side by side. The problem doesn't occur when the panels are docked side by side each other in the main window. When floated, the interesting thing is that when you click in the other panel you can scroll the text of that Bible, but other functions such as starting Read Aloud or enabling Paged View don't work.

I'll report the problem.

Hi Melissa,

Can you confirm that this issue will be fixed in the next beta?  It's super annoying... switching panels and pressing Space to page down, only to find the wrong panel pages down, etc...

Hi Stuart,

It doesn't look like this issue will be fixed in Beta 4. It may be in the one following. I'll update this thread when I can confirm the fix.
