LiveEdit option disappeared!

So... yeah, I used to use it from time to time in Phpstom 7. Not as good as Brackets but that one doesn't support PHP so oh well...

Thing is that I installed Phpstorm 8 and it's now gone, literally. I have the plugin installed, and the chrome extension installed, yet it's not in the View menu:

Which just brings me here:

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin, but nothing. Wtf?

Hi there,

Live Edit works slightly differently now -- it requires JS run/debug configuration to be used

Settings for Live Edit are now in "Settings | Debugger | Live Edit" .. and debug tool window now has "Update Application" button (blue "reload"-kind of arrow)

Thanks for responding.

I have a couple of followups. Please look at this screenshot:

When I click an element in A nothing is highlighted. However, when I click on B, then the element is instantly highlighted in Chrome. But of course I can't edit there. Why is not getting highligted from A like it used to be? This seems to be all set:

The "hold shift" thing works intermitently, and it's also very messy (it makes text selections across the code, like it's supposed to).

Another issue: when I edit the html code, the page automatically reloads with the changes. It reloads that's not really Live Edit like (if I recall correctly) it used to do. However CSS modifications are instantly changed without automatically reloading, which is pretty cool and what I'd expect from HTML edits.

Fixes?

Thanks

Not sure what you mean by elements A and B - what are they?

'Pure' HTML is also hotswapped, but this is not the case for PHP. And you are editing HTML code in a .php file, aren't you?
