Atom font has changed without prompt


The font used by Atom in the tabs, tree and settings menu has all changed from its default (which I loved) to this version (please see attachment).

I haven’t changed any settings beyond updating some packages, so it’s a mystery as to why it has done it. Does anybody have a solution?


Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Also, could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?


I’m using Atom 1.4.1, on OS X 10.11.3.

Using atom --safe eliminates the issue, so I suppose this indicates the issue is with a package rather than the core build of Atom?


Yes, that’s typically what it means. Other people have had good luck using package-cop package to help them track down issues like this.


Thank you :slightly_smiling:

I did use package-cop but it didn’t highlight the error, though it was rather simple in the end: Atom Material UI was the cause. Changing theme fixes the issue.
