I just downloaded a trial of WebStorm 5.0.4 for the Mac, and set up a project with an existing website on an FTP server. I then tried to enable the Live Edit functionality (installing the Chrome extension and checking the two checkboxes under the IDE Settings).
The first issue is that when I'm editing a local copy of an HTML file and I select View -> Web Preview and select Chrome, the browser opens the page on the server and not the local copy. It does, however, highlight the section of the page that I am editing in real time. This real-time highlighting also works if I manually open the local copy of the HTML file in Chrome.
The second issue is that while the section of the page I am editing in WebStorm is highlighted in Chrome in real time, the actual changes I make are not automatically reflected in Chrome (I would have to manually refresh the page in Chrome).
Perhaps I missed some steps in the setup process, or am using the feature incorrectly?
Thank you in advance for any guidance.
