I just started using Atom for a small website project two weeks ago and I am really enjoying it. Unfortunately one hour ago things went downhill.
Somehow I must’ve pressed some weird button combination and now my “:” will not work anymore and instead prints a “>” everytime i use it.
Since I’m using a german (EU) layout the first step was to check my language settings in windows for the keyboard, nothing changed. Second thing was restarting atom. Then I checked if this problem occurs only in that specific html file. It does not.
Every .html file does have this problem, however in every other document I open with atom (.css, .js files) the “:” is working just fine, same goes for every other program I use. It’s just every .html file I open with atom is not able to use the “:” (which is ‘shift-.’ on EU-layout). Now I just deinstalled and installed atom again but it won’t fix the problem.
I have no clue at all what just happened and I am very desperate for any solutions.
Thanks in advance
