Preferences problem


I’m using Atom on OSX but it seems there is no way to save preferences (i.e Hide Ignored Names in tree, Theme color and so on).

Moreover every-time I open the app it shows me the welcome message.
I tried to remove and install again Atom but the problem still here.

Any idea how to resolve the problem with the settings?



Is the ~/.atom directory writable by your user? Try fixing the permissions (or just delete it, and Atom will recreate it)


Hi postcasio,
chmod didn’t solve the problem but deleting the folder fixed the issue.

Thanks so much
