Description of the Issue

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/7.x/7.5.3/npp.7.5.3.bin.minimalist.7z
I think the name of this feature does not really describe itself, so...
it is (or was) the feature that prompt user a file opened in notepad++ get changed outside of notepad++, e.g. a log file. It does not work in version 32-bit 7.5.3. (or earlier version)

Steps to Reproduce the Issue

  1. Open a text file in notepad++
  2. Change the text file with windows notepad, or eclipse, or mathlab, or alphazero.
  3. When user get back to notepad++, there used to be a prompt to ask if the user want to get the file updated, or the file is already updated silently. Now there is nothing.

Expected Behavior

1.When user get back to notepad++, there used to be a prompt to ask if the user want to get the file updated, or the file is already updated silently. Now there is nothing.

Actual Behavior

1.When user get back to notepad++, there used to be a prompt to ask if the user want to get the file updated, or the file is already updated silently. Now there is nothing.

Works for me; I get prompted. Try a freshly unzipped portable install of 7.5.3 32-bit (if that's not what you did) and see if that works for you?

Completely fresh unzip of npp.7.5.3.bin.minimalist.7z does not work.
Maybe this only happens in specific env?
Mine is XP SP3 32-bit, the file is on a ramdisk, timestamp and content get updated. No update in npp.

The oddball thing might be the ramdisk, try removing that from the mix if you can?

@dail8859
The npp I used to verify this issue is a freshly unzipped one, everything default, should be the same as your screenshot.

@sasumner
Thanks for the suggestion, Just moved the npp and the file to a normal storage and tried again, same issue.
I was using npp 6.x.x a few weeks back, it prompted me updated files even on a ramdisk env.
So, the oddball maybe XP.

Update:
this is the last working one

Language menu and Style configurator sorted alphabetically and use the same language name in the Style configurator as the language menu.

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/donho/notepad-plus-plus/build/1.0.1526

this is the first which breaks it

Switch to VS 2015

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/donho/notepad-plus-plus/build/1.0.1530

There were no builds from 1.0.1527 to 1.0.1529 due to errors.
