Detecting File changes under windows

Under XP for Build #9164 and Under Vista for Build 9540

The only way I can get it to detect file changes, is to change focus.
ie: click on another application then click back on IJ.

I don't remember this being a problem with pre 8.0 releases.

Is there a refresh key like F5 for IntelliJ like in eclipse, If I can't depend on the files being in sync
then I need to be able to force a reload of all open files.

Yep, there's "Synchronize" button on main toolbar Ctrl+Alt+Y. Generally you don't need to invoke that since synchronization is automatically executed on certain events like termination of the ANT build, focus gain, end of version control operation etc. It would help a lot if you notice what operation doesn't cause files to be updated in your environment.

Hello Maxim,

I've provided a few details at http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-20832

It started as a svn changes issue, but it seems to point to a synchronization
issue. I was even considering creating a new, dedicated jira issue for the
synchronization part (with a higher severity), I see it quite often and it
leads to all sorts of problems (from invalid red markings, to edits on stale
files with the file system vs memory content warnings, etc).

What puzzles me is the fact that other people don't seem to complain about
it, while it happens a lot on my side.

Best,
Andrei

Hello Maxim,

I just had reports of other developers in my team seeing the same synchronization
issues, so it's not just my machine. Here's a dedicated issue:
