I used to open a file for editing in mc (using mcedit to be more exact) and then switch to console to do some stuff, then again return to file editing and so on.

Some time ago (after updating mc I suppose) things changed and now should I switch to console via ctrl-o while editing a file and start typing a console command, it returns me back to my file and puts everything typed to it. It used to stay in console until I specifically return to my file via ctrl-o.

Why is it happening like so now, what changed? Is there any setting to revert it back?

  • the version you are now (and then) may be useful in answering – WEBjuju Feb 14 '18 at 18:34
  • @WEBjuju I would mention it, if I knew. I mean I didn't notice the exact version when this behaviour changed as I don't use console every time I edit a file, so it might be a couple of updates ago actually. – PF4Public Feb 14 '18 at 18:56
