TexnicCenter reloading document for unknown reason

Postby OlufTE » Thu Sep 24, 2015 11:29 am

Hello All

I'm having the problem that TeXnicCenter from time to time tells me:

"The file has been modified outside TeXnicCenter. Should TeXnicCenter reload the document?"

I've seen there's a previous post about this but it involves Bibtex which I'm not using (in this case).

The pop-up appears at seemingly random times i.e. I'll be writing something and it will just appear (which is really annoying since I sometimes end up pressing space and thus accepts to reload and lose some of my work).

The problem do seem to be restricted to some particular tex-files which would indicate that something in them is causing this. Though I'm not loading any particularly fancy packages (in the current file, I'm just using amsmath, amssymb, graphics, amsbsy, amsfonts, graphicx, verbatim, wasysym, eucal).

Does anyone know what could be causing the problem? Or whether it's possible somehow to make TeXnicCenter stop asking to reload the document.

This has nothing to do with LaTeX packages at all. Something is changing your files in the background, this could be quite anything, even a virus scanner. Or it is a problem (i.e. bug) in TeXnic Center. You can report the behaviour at the TeXnic Center support pacge.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

It could be a .aux file that gets changed every time you run Latex.
