Drag & drop files into Atom


#1

Why can’t I just drag & drop files into the Atom editor like I can in Sublime Text?
Is there a way to enable this?

Also, is there a way to disable Atom from opening the entire folder structure as a ‘project’ every time I want to open just one file?

This has worked out-of-the-box since forever, at least on macOS and Windows. I haven’t heard of third-party packages that limit this, but you could still try by running Atom in safe mode: atom --safe

Strange, I’ll try that out thanks!

Opening Atom in safe mode doesn’t allow it either. I’m on Windows. I’ll try reinstalling it
