I often have a log file produced by my application open in the editor. While stepping through the program and when finishing a debug run, that annoying popup keeps coming up.

It has been popping up in my face 100x a day for years now and I'm seriously getting tired of it.

I know I could close it... Trouble is, I have a lot of source files opening when debugging and I'm not iterested in going and hunting it down over and over and over. I also often look at the file while debugging and after runs.

Why not have a way to tag that file as "always reload". Please?

I face the very same issue with VS 2010 / 2012 / 2013.

During development I write the dgml file "a.dgml" on every run that holds a graph. This file is open in VS and I would wish that it simply updates after every program run. However, I hav to click this alert box about "file modified" every time again and again. It is really ununderstandably annoying and in particular: What does or should the checkbox "Auto-load changes, if saved" do? It does not change anything, I do not understand the meaning of this checkbox.
