Live Edit not working with .css files

Hi there,

I have a problem debugging my webprojects css files with PHPStorm 8.0.3 on Windows 7 x64.

Changes on "style.css" are not recognized by "Live Edit" respectively the browser is not refreshing.

  • "JetBrains IDE Support" (2.0.7) Chromium extension is installed and set up. Chromium (42.0.2286.0)
  • Live Edit (2.0.11.139) Plugin is installed and set up.
  • Live Edit Option: "Update Auto in (ms) 300" is activated.
  • Live Edit Option: "Restart if hotswap fails" is checked.
  • Live Edit is updating the browser successfully if PHP files are changed.
  • CSS file is loaded inside head of "index.php" via
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
  • "index.php" and "sytle.css" are both inside "Resource Root" folder.


I have tried it on different projects with the same result.

Any help? :-)
