I’ve opened a large file that Atom doesn’t seem to be able to cope with. Atom freezes. Restarting atom tries to reopen that file and freezes. And so on.
I can resolve this by moving the offending file out of the way when restarting atom. I can move the file back after restarting and restart atom without it trying to reopen it again.
This is a faff. As Atom’s premise is to be the most hackable editor possible, I wondered where the option was to edit the project space so I can remove the tab for a file to stop it being reopened.
