Search in Directory Issue


I’m using Atom v 1.20.1 x64 on a Windows 7 laptop.

When I try and Search in a Directory, it never returns any results, says that 0 paths are searched, and will sit and spin until I close the application.


Did this start recently? Does this happen if you open Atom from the command line with atom --safe?


Yes, this just recently started to happen.

When I open atom in safe mode, the problem still exists.


In order to attempt to figure out what’s going on, I’d like for you to download and run the file of an old release. You can download it to a directory and run it with no installation, and it will use your existing .atom folder, so all of your configuration will be the same. If it started recently, it could have been an update in Atom.


Well, I downloaded v1.19.7 and it seems to be working normally. Should I report this as a bug or just leave it?


I decided to uninstall all version of Atom and install the 1.21.0.

This is also working fine. I"m not sure what happened to my other versions. Thank you for you hlep!
