Attempting to open a file from tree view fails, but opens Developer Tools


#1

In my workspace, my folder hierarchy has a handful of log files…

local/log/access.log
local/log/error.log
local/log/app_access.log
local/log/app_error.log

When click on these files in the tree view, access.log and error.log open as expected. However, both app_access.log and app_error.log fail to open but the Developer Tools do open.

Did I coincidently stumble upon a magic file name?


#2

Nah, its not that magical, I had it earlier splitting a pane whilst focussed on a bog standard json file. Was reproducible at the time but I cant do it now after a restart (which, incidentally, updated me to 0.76).


#3

It is probably opening up the dev tools because there is an error. Can you click on the console tab in the dev tools and paste the stack trace in here?


#4

Bingo.

Uncaught Error: Atom can only handle files < 2MB, for now.
