Whitespace needed!


Hi y’all,

Been using atom for a while now and I have forgotten one of the most important shortcut keys ever. I don’t even know how to google it. I don’t want trailing whitespace to be stripped! I want more of it.
How does one get more space at the bottom of the code, so my code is not sitting sadly at the bottom. What is this called? ‘Create more whitespace’ ‘extra space at the bottom’ ‘trailing white space’ also has failed me. Please help!


Scroll past end, maybe? Edit->Preferences->Editor->Scroll Past End.


Hi, you are looking for the scroll past end feature:

  1. lauch atom
  2. Open Settings View with Cmd+, on macOS or Ctrl+, on other platforms
  3. Click the Editor tab
  4. Make sure scroll past end is checked


Andrea, thank you. You are a legend! ‘Scroll past end’, thats it!
