I’m rather new to Atom but recently (don’t know what caused it to start and it might only be related to a specific type of file with extension “strings”) I need to press my left-/right-arrow keys twice to move the cursor a single position in the requested direction.
As this is quite annoying, I started digging around but until now I just found a few leads on how to “debug” but not how to fix it.
Anyone able to help?
I pressed “Cmd+.” to be able to see how my keypresses are interpreted and this is what I found when pressing the Right-arrow key:
I also figured out that when I hover over the presented lines, I can “edit” these files.
When I look at the “core:darwin.cson” and check out what is listed for the “left” and “right” keys, it shows:
As said in the beginning, strange enough, this issue seems to be related to files of type “strings” as within that darwin.cson file and with other files, the keybehaviour is acting normal, so a single press of an arrow key is required to move it a single position.
All of this is just related to left / right. Up / down is NOT affected.
I’m running Atom version 1.18 on Mac OS-X Sierra (10.12.5).
Anyone any suggestions?
