'Set Focus on Timeline...' checkbox doesn't work with stacked Monitors. Please fix!
If the Source and Program Monitors are stacked on top of each other in the same window, every time the user sends a clip to the Timeline from the Source Monitor using the 'Insert' or 'Overwrite' shortcuts, the focus changes to the Timeline/Program Monitor. This happens despite the ‘Set focus on the Timeline when performing Insert/Overwrite edits’ checkbox in the Preferences window being turned off!
The obvious workaround to avoid this is to dock the Program Monitor in another window. However, it would be nice for this bug to be fixed, especially for laptop editors who stand to benefit the most from the screen space savings of stacking the Program and Source Monitors in the same window.

I don't have stacked monitors and it still doesn't work. I do have two timelines open.. I'm in PP 15.4.1.
It's actually really annoying.

Sadly this problem persists in Pr v15.4.0 Beta.
What's the benefit of having the focus change from the Source to the Program monitor each time a clip is sent from the Source Monitor to the Timeline with the Insert or Overwrite shortcut? There simply isn't any, since this unwanted behaviour makes it impossible for users to edit efficiently with stacked Source & Program monitors.
Fixing this is an absolute no brainer IMO!
