Description lindsey.driscoll 2012-04-19 17:18:45 UTC

After using the version control update feature to a file (or project) when that file is open (and only when that file is open) the file does not get updated to reflect the changes. You must close the file and re-open to see the new changes.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Commit a code change to a project file (a comment is probably best) from a     different computer.
2. Open up that same project in a different computer (or vm)
3. Open the file that was changed
4. Right click on the file in the solution explorer
5. Go to Version Control -> Update
6. Wait for the version control feature at the bottom of MD showing the file was updated

Actual Result:

Open file does not display the change

Expected Result:

Open file should show the changes


Close the file then re-open it and you should see the changes


MacOSX: Lion
MD: tested on alpha and latest stable (
