If I have an illustrator file open, and then open a second, I can't view the 2nd file even if it's the one selected
I am having a consistent issue that any time I open a second file in illustrator, the view is always on the first file, even if I have the 2nd file selected. I have not found a way to resolve this so I can't copy and paste between files!

I have been having the same problem for the last few months. It is driving me crazy and I have to shut everything down and restart. They only way I can work on the next file is by dragging it out of the tabs and have it as its own window. BUT when I do that all my tools don't work unless they are too their own floating 'window'.
