File Watcher runs when changing files externally?

I set a File Watcher to compile SCSS files to CSS. It is working perfectly while modifying SCSS files from PyCharm itself but when using an external editor (with PyCharm open at the same time) the File Watcher does not trigger until PyCharm gets focus again. Is there a way the file watcher controls all change sin files independently from where are they made from? (similar to "sass –watch file")

The reason to want that is because I set chrome dev tools to edit my scss files directly from the browser (using sourcemaps and chrome workspaces).
