A number of additional tutorial videos for Atom have been posted on the Audioveek YouTube channel:
You can slightly humanise your patterns by quantising 'note starts' about 6-10% over a 1/8th triplet quantize grid.
It's not as good as proper shuffle, but it adds a little human jitter to your rhythms and melodies.
Adjust according to taste.
If you have chords with uneven ends, you can use hold and vertical swipe with the scissors tool to trim them to a neat uniform length
If you’re bummed that the awesome Step Input mode doesn’t allow rest notes (at least, not yet) then I suggest you use a note at the extreme end of your midi keyboard for this purpose, such as C-0 or C-6 (ie any key that won’t be appearing in your actual sequence).
Use this key as your rest markers, and then manually delete these notes after entering your sequence. Tip - you can select all these ‘fake rest notes’ by holding the corresponding on-screen piano key to select the entire row, then press delete.

Trouble shooting - workaround
If your notes are truncated turn OFF Snap to grid
If you turn off note playback from piano on the left (speaker icon), you can scroll by sliding over the piano keyboard area.
