Atom 1.50.0 does not open on MacOS 10.15.2

Hi all,

I want to use Atom for one of my courses in university, however I can not seem to open the application.

I had the application installed and tried to link python to atom using the terminal but that did not work. I decided to uninstall and reinstall atom to try again, but the application does not open right now. What I remember from the first time is the ‘running factory’ when installing the application, but that is not showing every time I try to download the application now. The only thing I see when I open the program is ‘atom’ in the left top corner of the screen with file, edit and window next to it. None of the aforementioned items provide clickable options, however.

Does anyone know an easy solution?

Kind regards,

Dominiek
