Use this page to configure general behavior of IntelliJ IDEA.
|Synchronize files on frame or editor tab activation||If this check box is selected, all the files that were changed externally are reloaded from disk when you switch to IntelliJ IDEA from a different application, or when you you switch to their editor tab.|
|Save files on frame deactivation||
If this check box is selected, all modified files are auto saved
when you switch from IntelliJ IDEA to a different application.
Note that you cannot disable autosave completely by turning off this and the following option. See Saving and Reverting Changes.
|Save files automatically if application is idle for N seconds||If this check box is selected, all modified files are auto saved at regular time internals. See also, Saving and Reverting Changes.|
|Use "safe write" (save changes to a temporary file first)||If this check box is selected,
a changed file is first saved in a temporary file.
If the save operation succeeds, the file being saved is replaced with the saved file.
(Technically, the original file is deleted and the temporary file is renamed.)
Also, the ownership of such file changes.
