Help: Editor snaps left on right scroll


I have been using Atom for a while now for my Meteor.js development, and I love it. Recently, however, I started seeing a strange anomaly where the editor pane will not allow me to scroll right. Instead, the editor pane snaps me back to the left.

I am pretty sure it’s probably one of the many addons I have installed, but I am not sure which. How would I go about determining which one is breaking my scroll-right so I can disable it?


Well, first determine if it is one of your packages (though I suspect you are correct) by opening Atom in Safe Mode:

  1. Close all instances of Atom
  2. Launch Atom again with atom --safe

If you cannot reproduce the bug in Safe Mode. It is almost assuredly one of your packages. After that, @mark_hahn’s package-cop package has often been helpful in tracking down which package is the offending one.
