I can't open a second file! Opening a second file makes the first disappear!


In the most recent version of Atom, v1.6, a new Pending Pane Items feature was added that is described here:

There are a few ways that you can make a “pending” item permanent:

  1. Double-click the tab for the pending item
  2. Save the file (even if there are no changes)
  3. Edit the file

You can also disable the feature by going to the Settings View and unchecking “Allow Pending Pane Items” in the Core Settings section.
