WebStorm not reloading code if edited outside IDE

For some reason, WebStorm is being kind of bad about reloading the code view if the file has been changed outside WebStorm. I have to forcibly do a "Reload From Disk". But sometimes it reloads though it's very late.

is there some way to make this reload as soon as a file is changed? I've had bad situations where I'm editing code and suddenly it asks me to load from memory or load from disk.

WebStorm should normally update the file immediately when you move focus to it after editing the file externally (if you have Settings>Appearance & Behavior>System Settings > "Synchronize files on frame activation" enabled). Do you have any symlinks in your project path? Are your project files  located on your local disk, or on remote drive/dropbox/etc.?
