Log Monitoring (tail -f) vs File Status auto detection

  • I would like to know what is the difference between the ‘new’ Log monitoring feature (the eye icon) vs the File Status auto detection (under Settings / Preferences / MISC ), as the behaviour seems the same to me.

    Both do not appear to update unless Notepadd++ is the active window, and both can scroll to the last line.

    Anything I’m missing?

    when searching the forum you will see that log monitoring is working like tail as long
    as the underlying protocol/event processing is supporting it.
