Problem opening in some circumstances


#1

I’m having some issues opening files with Atom in some situations. I’m running macOS, Atom 1.26.0. Atom is originally launched usually through the dock, or by double clicking a file type that is associated with Atom (have recreated after launching from command line).

The issue occurs in two different ways:

1: With Atom running, after closing all windows, trying to “Open” through the file menu does absolutely nothing. The same with trying to “Reopen project”.

2: Have Atom running, close all windows, then quit Atom. Then if I try to open a file associated with Atom through the Finder, Atom will launch but will not open a window. There will also not be any menu options, the only choice is the “Atom” menu with the option to “Quit” (see screenshot).

Issue number 2 also seems to cause problems sometimes when Atom updates (either App update or package updates), when I choose to “relaunch Atom”. Atom seems to either not quit properly or not relaunch properly and I’ll end up with this state, then when I manually quit it will relaunch with the previously open windows.

Hi :wave:

I think you are facing this issue https://github.com/atom/atom/issues/17178. This should be fixed in the next hotfix release Atom 1.26.1.

The 1.26.1 update fixes issue number 2 for me, but Issue 1 still persists. I’ve opened an issue https://github.com/atom/atom/issues/17226
