Is there a size limit for files edited by Atom?


#1

Is there a size limit for files edited by Atom? I read elsewhere that there is a 2MB file size limit, but that information may no longer be correct.

There isn’t a hard size limit anymore, no. There are practical limitations though in that Atom bogs down with larger or more complex files.

@leedohm What would you recommend as a practical size limit for a file being edited in Atom?

To be honest, I don’t know … the only time I’ve ever run into a problem is when I have opened something on the order of hundreds of megabytes.
