Frozen interface


#1

When invoking the desktop “Open with Atom” on a particular folder, Atom is now completely freezing. The focused tab is not on a particular large file or anything. Possible causes or tips on debugging?


#2

This is true even for safe mode, though it does not occur on another folder.


#3

How many files are in the folder you’re trying to open? How does Atom behave if you open it without a target and then use File -> Add Project Folder to add the troublesome folder?


#4

30 items directly in the folder, but a whole lot of files in some of the subdirectories.

The problem does not occur when I use Add Project Folder (or when I copied all files to a new directory and opened that directory as the target).

(However, I do see a problem I have sometimes seen before that clicking on a different item in the Tree View will replace the tab rather than open a new tab.)


#5

(Though that latter problem doesn’t occur in safe mode.)


#6

I take it back–it does occur in safe mode.


#7

What are your system specs? Are you noticing an increase in RAM or CPU usage around the time when a freeze happens?


#8

I don’t know why, but now it is no longer attempting to load all of the formerly loaded tabs, so it is working again.


#9

And the issue with replacing content was due to the package single-click-open currently having problems (I always forget that there is that counter-intuitive click once to preview default).


#10

You probably had a very large file in the background, and then when you were copying files to a new directory, you didn’t have any of the pre-existing tabs open.
