Do not auto-reload big logfiles

Do not auto-reload big logfiles

Postby JohnDoe on Thu Jan 30, 2014 10:07 pm

If I am viewing a huge logfile of +200MB and it is often updated (sometimes several times per minute), it is very annoying that ST3 reloads it - I would even say useless.
There should really be an option to control the auto-reload so it can at least be disabled.

You can't disable auto reloading all together, but this will prevent it from reloading (well it should prompt you if the content on disk have changed). The following can be found in the default settings file.

Code: Select all
// Always prompt before reloading a file, even if the file hasn't been
    // modified. The default behavior is to automatically reload a file if it
    // hasn't been edited. If a file has unsaved changes, a prompt will always
    // be shown.
    "always_prompt_for_file_reload": false

I know this option is available but it doesn't change the fact that it still is pretty useless to load huge textfiles that often changes.
Having an option for the auto-reload seems so obvious and I assume it is pretty simple to implement.
