On Mac, password dialog is not focussed when saving changes to a file to which you don’t have write access


On Mac, if I make changes to a file to which I don’t have write access and attempt to save them, the dialog that pops up asking for an administrator password is not focussed, and if you start typing your password without noticing you end up typing it into the file you are trying to save. Neither Sublime Text nor TextMate do this.

Is this a known issue. If not, against what should I file a bug?


I don’t think it is a known issue. You should probably file a bug against Atom Core.



Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
