Atom (Mac) not restoring files on launch


#1

I’m not sure if I’ve done something wrong but I cannot get Atom to restore previously opened files when I re-launch it. I’m running 1.5.3 on Mac.

The only relevant preference I can see is “open empty editor on start” and that’s unticked.

Any help will be appreciated.


#2

Have you tried just clicking the icon?


#3

Yep. It was originally clicked (not sure if that’s default or I was a bit trigger-happy when first reviewing the configuration options) but when it wasn’t restoring files I unclicked it but it’s just the same.


#4

I’m not sure what this means. I meant have you tried clicking the Atom icon in the Dock or in the Applications folder?


#5

Oh I see. Apologies. I’ve tried both.


#6

Do you have write access to the ~/.atom directory on your system?


#7

I do, yes.
