Hello, I came here to report this and found this thread. I can say that in any situation when I want to write to or create files, and atom is open and in the same folder, then I consistently get permission errors. I have to close atom, do the file writing/creating and reopen atom (which works).
I don’t mind, except every time I run a build task, I have to close, build, reopen. I was using windows 7, and had this problem and recently upgraded to windows 10, and also have the same problem.
but yes to be clear, atom is clearly locking directories so that other programs and processes may not write to them.
It is for this reason, and this reason only, I have prolonged my usage of brackets which doesn’t do this. I’d love to see this get resolved, otherwise the editor is really great, and I love it to smithereens.
