It seems to me that Pinegrow is ignoring / not noticing / overwriting changes made to style.css in Wordpress development. When I save in an external editor, there isn’t the “auto-refresh” that I get when making changes to html, and I have to export the theme to pick up changes. Tonight, it seemed that changes I made were being totally ignored, and in desperation, I closed Pinegrow, edited style.css and then re-opened Pinegrow, and the change had disappeared! I’m editing the file that is in the same folder as category.html, etc.
I want to use an external editor because sometimes there is a css rule that I have elsewhere, that I just want to copy in, and this is much easier in direct edit.
Is style.css a special case that should not be edited outside Pinegrow? Or is it too late at night and I’m going ga-ga?
I did see a message once about the file appears to have changed and did I want to overwrite, but the text of this message is confusing to me - it wasn’t clear WHICH version if it was asking if I should overwrite. Pretty sure this message didn’t come up every time I went to export, though.
Thanks for any information.
