When the user is editing a .SAS file in the SAS Enhanced Editor and the .sas file is modified by an external program, the SAS Enhanced Editor should alert the user with an option to reload the changes. This helps prevent unwanted surprises.
This is a common feature in Notepad++, Aginity, and other software.
- someone else modifies a file stored on the network
- the same user modifies the file using a different SAS editor session or different application
