When I code I write all the code then debug>
When I debug I get into the rapid cycle of debug/fix -> run -> debug/fix.
There is nothing so fn frustrating as having to constantly break the rythm to click the focus to the console to input data, especially when logic dictates that it should have been set to auto by default with an option to change to user preferred from the day it was devised.
Mayhap someone there can do the five minute fix for this?

I doubt most people would find auto-focus useful (and not super annoying) except perhaps for the case that the console is definitely/actually being used to prompt for input from the user. But I don't think there is any way for the console to know whether the running process is actually waiting for input so no way to know when it would be appropriate (actually helpful) to take focus away from where the user currently has it to put it in the console instead. For most cases, the console is primarily used for output not input, which is why the view has options to Show Console When Standard Out/Error Changes; output on the output streams can be of course detected.

So no, there is no such option and adding such an option is not a five minute task.
