Open File dialog bug when pasting file path


This bug stops users pasting text into the ‘Go to the folder’ prompt. Kind of annoying not to have this considering so many other text editors have it, and I can’t see any reason Atom shouldn’t support this.


  1. COMMAND + O to open the Open dialog to open a file
  2. COMMAND + SHIFT + G to open the “Go to the folder:” prompt
  3. COMMAND + V to paste path currently copied on clipboard

Path populates on the screen, letting me then open the file

Alert bell goes off, no text appears in input.

Probably due to fact that that so many options in the menu are disabled when using the Open dialog? (including Edit > Paste)
