Cannot modify 755 files (permission denied) - Atom >= 1.19



after updating to 1.19 or 1.20beta i can’t save any file with 755 permissions. An error pops up saying “permission denied”.

Rolling back to Atom 1.18 it asks for my password and then i can modify and save the file.
version >= 1.19 does not ask for my password, It just says permission denied.



Are you on macOS? This is a known issue in Atom 1.19 on macOS.
