Atom has become slow when typing


I have noticed that Atom has become very slow when typing to the point I have switched to a different editor. I currently have Atom 1.53.0 installed on Mac OS 10.15.7.

It seems to only affect when you use the spacebar.


This seemed to resolve it for me:

Fully close Atom
Then in terminal type
cd ~
mv .atom .atom_backup
Then re-open Atom
