Notepad++ was not picking up document changes
Hi, I was using an old version of notepad++ and I had 3 documents I regularly had to do a search and replace on. So I just left them open all the time. I would update the documents from another program and with notepad++ already open when I switched to notepad++ in windows it would notify me that the document had been changed by another program. I would then go ahead and do the two search and replace actions and save it and all was good.
So I upgraded notepad++ (not that I needed to) and this automatic detection of another program changing the document stopped working.
I just solved it by uninstalling and reinstalling the old version. I just thought I would let you know.

Maybe the newer version of Notepad++ has different Preference settings than the earlier version. Maybe all you need to do is adjust the Preference setting to get the old behavior you liked back. Or maybe not…
