Atom freezes and crashes when pasting large amounts of text, or with multiple tabs


#1

On the odd occasion Atom will freeze, and crash, when pasting large amounts of text. It also happens when I have multiple tabs open (20+).

What is the reason for this happening? I’m assuming it’s a memory issue, or a Chrome issue, but I’ve yet to find any solution.

It happens more on my Ubuntu machine, but has happened on my iMac too. Both of which have 8GB memory.

Can you be more specific than “large amount of text”? 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?
