|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.
|Support screen readers (requires restart)|
