Developer Tools infinitely repeat what I type


I’m wondering if this is happening for anybody else: whenever I open the Developer Tools (⌘⌥I) and attempt to type anywhere, the letters repeat infinitely until I close the dev tools.

Makes it fairly unusable…

Inspector is Unfriendly

I have the same problem with a clean install.


Thanks for reporting this. I’ve opened an issue in the Atom repo and we will look into this!


It looks like this only happens when dev tools is detached from the Window. We are working on a fix, but for now just keep the dev tools attached to the window!
