Automatic reloading of aliased research files

I have a number of annotated pdfs that I alias in Scrivener, but it seems that if I make new annotations to them, I have to manually reload them. Is there a way to do this automatically, suppose Scrivener detects a change to the file and would then reload it so that the new annotations would be visible?

Loving the software and this is my only niggling point.


There’s no way for Scrivener to manually update, no - otherwise it would have to poll your hard drive - but there should be a little “reload” button in the footer that should make it as easy as one click.

All the best,
