Strange keyboard behaviour


Mac OSX 10.11.4

In a fairly recent update I’ve found that my keyboard sometimes doesn’t seem to respond correctly when using atom. One noticeable issue is I use ⌘~ to switch between open windows. On some windows it works fine but on other windows it’s as if it’s somehow disabled.

I don’t have any custom keymaps so that shouldn’t be causing any issues.


Can you reproduce the issue when running Atom in Safe Mode? To launch Safe Mode:

  1. Completely exit all instances of Atom
  2. Launch Atom with the command atom --safe


It’s works fine doing that, although closing and opening also works, but it seems to do it on a regular basis.


If it works in Safe Mode, then it is most likely a community package that is causing the problem. There is an open Issue on this, but since the problem is so rare I strongly suspect that a package is behind it:
