Code Compare doesn't auto refresh when a file is changed externally

Post by milesgray » Thu 09 Nov 2017 16:03

Hi Team,

If you compare two files, then make changes to the same file being compared in a different editor/IDE, and save the file changes - Code Compare doesn't register that the file has changed. It would be great if you could implement an auto refresh feature which will automatically refresh the view when a file has changed instead of having to manually click the Refresh button, or press F5 afterwards.

Kind regards,
Miles

Hi Miles,

Thank you for reporting the problem. Code Compare editor support automatically refresh if file has been modified outside of the Code Compare editor. Did you see the following dialog https://cl.ly/0w112E1a0o1p?
