Editor collapsed from expanding right border


#1

My editor is all of a sudden not usable. I pressed cmd+alt± and the right border overtook everything leaving the editor window unusable (see image under). So far I haven’t found a hotkey to reverse the effect. How do I fix this problem?


#2

Edit: I just read the issue for this and realized that atom --clear-window-state also will cause you to lose unsaved work in all projects. So save any unsaved work before running it.

  1. Save all unsaved work
  2. Start Atom with atom --clear-window-state

Thank you, that worked a treat :slight_smile:

There is also an entry in the Atom FAQ for this:
