Checking for Modified Files

When you are working with files that Stylus Studio must open through network connections that might be slow, you might not want Stylus Studio to automatically check for modified files. Turning off this option can improve XML editing performance.

To turn off checking for modified files:
1. From the Stylus Studio menu bar, select Tools > Options.

The Options dialog box appears.

2. Click Application Settings if it is not already selected.

The Application Settings page of the Options dialog box appears.

3. If the Automatically check for externally modified files is selected, deselect it. For information about how Stylus Studio uses this setting see Options - Application Settings.

Alternatively, you can select Disable check on hidden files, which allows Stylus Studio to skip these files. Hidden files are files that are in the Stylus Studio project or the Other Documents folder but are not currently open in Stylus Studio.

4. Click OK.
