When externally editing a file that is also open in ISE, it would be a nice to have feature that ISE detects a change and prompts the user if they want it realoaded.
Product Studio item created by Connect Synchronizer due to creation of feedback ID 711915 (http://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=711915).
Open a PowerShell script file in ISE.
Edit the same file in notepad.
Add a blank space and save the file.
ISE does not detect the change
It would be nice if ISE set up a file watcher of sort to detect that the file was edited externally and prompt the user asking if they wanted to reload it.
