Long lines and big files


The editor doesn’t seem to handle very long lines well. I pasted some JavaScript code that was one lone line of about 37k. I hit Cmd- right arrow to jump to the end of line and the cursor was 3 or 4 characters before the end. Hitting right arrow more wouldn’t move the cursor any farther.

I also pasted a big lump of tomcat log into a new window. An exception was thrown and the debugger console appeared. (Sorry, I didn’t record the error.)

MacOS Mavericks, Atom 0.103.0 although the tomcat log error may have been more like Atom 0.100.0.



There’s an open issue about that.


I figured people knew about it. I just didn’t find anything when I searched discussion for it so I thought I’d mention it.
