Many of the projects I am working on include files that are over 5Mo. When I am working with Atom I often click on them (wrongly) and this used to make Atom work hard for nothing 😞.

In the screencast above, for instance, I had to wait for 1 minute to be able to work again, although the file was 5 MB only (atom 1.30.0 for the record). I did not have such issue with .csv files as I was using tablr that prompts a message before opening the file. From there I knew that what I needed was to make Atom prompt a message before opening large files. This was actually already implemented 😄 all I had to do was change the default value (40 MB), I set it to 1 MB.
