Issues on a non English Windows machine


I’m using a Hebrew version of Windows 7 and Atom doesn’t seem to like it.

Firstly, the menus are loaded fine, in English - but they’re on the right hand side of the window instead of sticking to the left.

Another issue is that after a couple of minutes their text simply disappears (although when I click in their position, the drop down menus will still open).

I’d love to know if there’s a way to fix these issues as of now by changing any configuration files or so.

Some technical information:

  • Atom version 0.186.0
  • Windows 7 Professional SP1 (64bit)


You should probably file a bug on for this. To my knowledge, there is no configuration for RTL language systems specifically. I assume that is what is causing the issue.
