It Won't Let Me Save


I know that the GitHub community is a very closely knit one, that’s why I’m here.

So whenever I type any kind of code and try to save the file, my atom freezes and then it stops responding and then it CRASHES!!

I really don’ want to go looking for a better text editor than Atom because I know it’s the best, so this is really setting me back because this is the best and if the best isn’t working then I’m screwed.


Yes, that happens when there is a problem. Can you give details of the system you are running and the version of Atom? How did you install it?

Try running it in safe mode. Type atom --safe in a command prompt.


If Safe mode does re-enable saving, is the implication that an installed package is breaking saving and preventing it?


Yes… or it is your init file.
