Line number column disappears


I noticed that the line number column started disappearing when I start atom. Here’s a gif of what it looks like when the app is loading:

Anyone know why this might be happening?


Does it happen if you start Atom from the command line with atom --safe?


yes, but in a different way: the line numbers don’t appear on load and then disappear shortly after, they are never present at all when started with atom --safe


In Settings View on the Editor tab do you have “Show Line Numbers” checked?


Thanks…that solved it. I feel like an idiot now.

Although I still have no idea how this setting was switched off. Is there a standard keybinding for toggling this?


I don’t think so. You can always check in the Settings View → Keybindings tab to see if you have a keybinding for something.
