Ctrl + , stopped working


So my ctrl + , keybind stopped working. I used to be able to select an entire html block using this keybind, however, all of a sudden it stopped working.
Now i honestly have no idea if this is a native feature of Atom, or if it’s a feature from a plugin…
In any case, does anyone have any idea on why this stopped working?

Tyvm in advance,

I’m pretty sure that Ctrl+, on Windows and Linux activates the Settings View. Which OS are you on?


I’m on Mac (El Capitan). On mac the settings view shortcut is cmd + , …


I’m on OS X also, and I do not have a Ctrl+, shortcut. So it must be some package.


Well, i just got home where i have atom installed on my laptop, with the same packages,everything the same as my work laptop.
And on this laptop the keybinding is still working. If i press ctrl + , i can select an entire block of quote.
I tried searching for the keybind on the keybind map, and apparently it doesn’t exist, even though it is usable…
I’m totally lost now…


Have you tried using the Keybinding Resolver (Cmd+. on OS X and Ctrl+. on other platforms)? It will show you what key Atom saw you press and the command that was triggered because of it.


On my desktop at home it says that it triggers “emmet:balance-outward”.
On my desktop at work it doesn’t say anything…
weird cause “balance-outward” has nothing to do with selecting a block of code…
