Atom prompts to save file changes despite no changes done


every time I close a file that has been opened with atom it always prompt me to save changes I made when in fact I didn’t change anything at all. This happens to all files I open. Can somebody tell me what’s wrong?

  1. Are you running Windows?
  2. Are you working on a Git repository that you share with others who run Linux?

If so, it is most likely a line ending issue … see the advice here:

@leedohm: Just saw this. Looking into it. Thanks again!
