Atom freezing every time I open it through github from large file


I was working on a project through Github Desktop and I opened a particularly large file (it’s actually a game map file so it’s not meant to be opened via text editor). Atom froze up, and I had to close it.
Unfortunately, now every time I open the project through Github it loads the same tabs causing Atom to hang again. I tried deleting .atom/storage but that only helps when I open Atom outside of Github. I even tried reinstalling Atom but it’s still happening. Would really appreciate some help with this, thanks.


Have you tried following the instructions on clearing saved state from the Atom Flight Manual?


I have not, that seems to have done it. Thanks a ton!
