I’m a student who has been using Atom for a few weeks now for ruby homework and I’m definitely enjoying it.
Today I figured I’d explore some features a little more, but when I tried to change the syntax theme I found that the text colors stay the same. Or maybe more specifically the background color changes and the text color seems to be a slightly different version of the same set of colors? Almost like the background color is dictating the shade of the same color theme.
Now I know different themes are supposed to be radically different sets of colors so this seems like its working incorrectly. Here’s what I tried (im on OS X)
- Basic restarting of program/computer and installing of different themes
- Complete reinstall of Atom including deletion of all appropriate hidden folders as found in a different Atom support thread
since the problem remains after a complete reinstall im totally baffled as to what could be going wrong. when i start up Atom i get this in the console but im not sure if theres any relation:
index.js:52 Window load time: 362ms

any help would be greatly appreciated. I’d really love to try out some syntax themes and I feel totally lost on this
