My keyboard stopped allowing me to type on atom


#1

I was developing on atom and then my keyboard is not letting type stuff into atom anymore unless Its enter and backspace. How can I start debugging this weird behavior?

I think the behaviour started when I disabled vim mode, but I re abled it and unistalled it and re-installed it and the problem isn’t gone…

Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Also, could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?

Atom just crashed.

Now its working so far… I wish I could reproduce what happened. I’ll keep you updated if anything happens. Thanks and sorry, it crashed and the problem was removed somehow :S.

Also, cmd+. on the mac shows you the flow of keybindings. Very useful. Of course this may have been broken as well :smile:
