Atom showing new UI element overlapping the tabs on macOS


Since a few days my Atom on macOS Sierra is showing this new UI element that overlaps the tabs bar.

Its seems to always display the title.
I disabled all packages and give the Beta channel a try without any success.

Any ideas how to get rid of this?


That’s the system tab bar. If you go to View and uncheck Show Tab Bar, it should hide.


You’re running full screen and using one of the new macOS title bar settings. The new macOS title bar settings will cause problems with some functionality. We’ve updated the warning in newer versions of the application to make this more clear.


Got it, thank you!
