Has anyone else experienced this? When I copy then paste a clip in a timeline or insert/overwrite into a timeline, the active panel randomly switches from the timeline to the Project panel. This doesn't happen everytime, but often enough to be really annoying. I paste into a timeline, then hit the up or down arrow keys or any other short cut and wonder why nothing is happening until I realzie I need to click back into the timeline.
I'm working in Productions.

Sorry about the poor experience. Is this happening specifically while working within Productions, or is it happening with all the projects? Also, is your workspace split across multiple monitors?
Yes I'm working across two monitors. Project panel is always on the left monitor, timeline is always on the right monitor. And I only starting noticing the issue since working in Productions. Not sure if it is happening outside of Productions, but I don't think so. I'll be back in a stand-alone project sometime later this month and will keep an eye out for it.
a follow up on this, I just spent two weeks in a stand-alone(non-Productions) project and did not experience this bug. Definitiely appears to be specific to Productions - or my Production. Also I'm now in v15.4.1 for this production. Have yet to update to v22.

I would try re-setting preferences.
Close the app.
On Windows hold down shift/control/alt and double click on the app icon to open the app.
On Mac same procedure but hold down shift/command/option.
Let your system make changes while holding down the keys.
Hopefully this helps.
Thanks Rob, I have definitely reset prefs for other reasons since I've noticed this and the problem has continued. I'll give it another shot.
Just to follow up, I reset my cache and prefs and even deleted all my custom window layouts just to see if that was a factor. Still getting the same issue periodically.
Try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
Thanks for the tip. I deleted all my cutom workspaces and started from a freshly reset layout earlier in troubleshooting. I just tried again, this time switching to premiere's default "Editing" workspace, then "Reset to Saved Layout" and continuing to work without changing the window layout. The focus shift back to the project panel still happens periodically when pasting in a timeline.
