what is the setting to make an alert , instead of auto-refresh ing the file, if the same file is modified by another process/editor externally, btw, I bought a licensed ST3.
I too am in desperate need of this function. If someone else edits the file I'm currently working on then I need Sublime to alert me, and not silenty discard my changes to the file.
I've found a few related topics, but no answer to your question:

Sublime Text will never silently discard your changes, it only reloads without prompting when you have no unsaved changes.
Is possible add setting "Prompt for reload changed files"?
It would be nice to have a overlay on the bottom that can also be accessible by the plugin API. Something like a "warning bar" or "notification bar". The bar would be like the findbar - but you would be able to control its message and also it could have buttons that would return a response to the plugin.So for example - when a file is detected as modified - it would show the message-bar overlay showing the last modified time of the current file and the newly detected revision - and on that overlay it would have a button for "Revert to new version", "Ignore".
Thanks for clearing this up. Would it be possible to add an option to disable the auto-reload altogether and always show a warning on file changes?
As someone who frequently needs to browse large live log files over a slow network connection, I would also love to have a way to turn off file auto-reloading.
There is a feature request to add this function to Sublime Text: sublimetext.userecho.com/topic/7 ... le-reload/
If you like to see this feature then please vote for it. (I did)
