Every time without fail, moving Atom into the Windows side by side split screen mode, the cursor stops blinking, and appears stuck. I cannot insert any text or change tabs, or open settings or anything. Doesn’t seem to matter which side of the screen it’s on, or what other application is open. Not sure what’s going on here. I’ve tried uninstalls and reinstalls, as well as running
atom --safe to avail.
I’ve also been experiencing a seemingly increased amount of freezes, that aren’t related to docking the window in side by side mode. It seems to happen when I am editing and saving files, opening new ones, or expanding a folder hierarchy.
I really enjoy the look and feel of Atom, but I simply cannot function with these issues. Last night when I was trying to change a few lines of code around, it crashed on me after every change, and I was constantly having to restart it.
Similar topics mention it could be package related. This is on a fresh install, with only the 78 core packages it comes with. No other settings have been changed.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Hopefully someone can come to the rescue!
