Open folder, new file, open button is unresponsive. What's going on?


#1

What’s going on? I can’t create a blank file. Going crazy over here.


#2

What happens when you use the File menu? What happens when you start Atom from the command line with atom --safe and then try to create a file or folder?


#3

thanks! that worked, do you know why that happened? will I have to start atom like this everytime I want to create a file using atom

I don’t know what happened yet, but --safe starts Atom without loading any packages, so if it eliminates the problem, there is probably a package at fault.
