how do I get a log file (.txt) to refresh while open in Notepad++?
Go to Settings>Shortcut Mapper and set a shortcut/hotkey for the item ‘Reload from Disk’ (line item 6). I set it to F5, which by default is the hotkey for ‘Run’ ( line item 271). I don’t use Run, so I set that to None. Now when I want a file to refresh, I can just hit F5.
