When files change, don't refresh view unless contents diff

When files change, don't refresh view unless contents diff

Postby parsifal on Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:31 pm

When a file changes on disk - especially when that disk is a remote directory that has been mounted - it'd be nice if the view of the file were only changed if the remotely-changed file's contents were different.

Right now Sublime Text seems to pretty aggressively refresh the view of files on disk that have changed outside the app. To be clear: The fact that Sublime Text is detecting changes and refreshing the view of the files is a feature I greatly appreciate. If the choice is between not refreshing the view of the file at all, or refreshing it aggressively, I'd always choose the latter.

Great editor; minor quibble!

Agreed; this bites me when using SSHFS.
