How can I set autoreload modified files in notepad++? The confirmation step is annoying, and in some situations completely unnecesary.
You can disable the confirmation in the settings:
Read the documentation for more information.
Both of the above commands are not working properly.
There is a command in the File menu, 'Reload from disk' which works perfectly.
I have made a shortcut Alt + R which makes it very handy. Yet, not automatic though.
There is a nice plugin called Document monitor (Can be found and installed from the Plugins => Plugin Manager => show Plugin Manager menu),
It updates the opened files every 3 seconds. Together with the option to "scroll to last line after update", it will have the ability to "tail" a log file as wanted.
After the plugin installation don't forget to activate it by clicking:
Plugins => Document monitor => start to monitor
