[oXygen-user] DiffCompare and Oxygen editor

Yes, I am editing via WebDAV, and I bet you’re right about it being a limitation of that. Awareness is definitely ideal, since it’s much too easy to accidentally overwrite changes made in Diff by saving the outdated file in the editor.

I guess the oXygen editor doesn't have a way to automatically see that the file has changed, as it would with a file open from the filesystem; but it does seem that oXygen Editor should (ideally) be made aware when changes are saved in the Diff Files tool.

I closed and reopened the file manually in order to see the changes reflected. The editor asks if the user wants to reload the document if it’s changed in the file system, is it possible to automate and/or detect changes from Diff Files, especially considering the input file is selected from the list of documents currently open in Oxygen?
