Editor gets jittery when typing near the edge on OSX


I normally have my editor taking up half my screen, and I have found in Atom that when I get to the edge of the screen and continue typing, the editor jumps left and right with every character I type (which is almost nausea-inducing).

Is there a way of fixing this / does anyone else observe this behaviour / please help?


I’m not seeing what you’re describing:

Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Also, could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Do you have the React editor enabled?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?


Enabling the React editor seems to have fixed it.
