Request: ability to change the root directory in the tree view of an existing Atom window.
It’s currently not possible to do this. That would be nice, and it might be an intermediate step towards resolving this issue.
Why? For instance: Sometimes open a file that’s in a subdirectory of a git repository. The git integration in Atom is awesome, but in this case it’s confusing because I can’t actually see the root of my repository (and thus other relevant files/directories). The only way I’ve found to move “up” the root of the tree view is to open the higher-level directory in a new Atom window, and then drag any open tabs into that new window.
