External changes check for remote directories
In general case, HippoEDIT does not pull external changes of an open file but relies on file system notifications, that inform editor about changes in respective files. But this approach does not always work for external changes happening with remote (network) files. For these files HippoEDIT uses “pull” logic, periodically checking them for changes.
The interval of how often editor will pull for changes on remote directories can be controlled by following XML flag in settings.xml:
<General> <RemoteDirCheckPeriod>500</RemoteDirCheckPeriod> </General>
Default value is 1000 milliseconds. If you set value to 0 pulling will be disabled.
