Lag in using sublime text + revise on a new laptop

I am encountering a somewhat strange issue that I haven’t faced before. I am editing a file in sublime text, and I save the file and switch over to an open session that has Revise loaded. For some reason, the update to the file isn’t reflected immediately in the REPL. I need to wait for 3-4 seconds for some buffer to be flushed to disk, after which Revise manages to load the changes. This is on a new laptop where the /home partition is on an M.2 SSD, formatted as ext4.

I wonder if anyone has faced similar issues before. I’m uncertain if it’s an issue with the hardware setup, or with sublime, or it lies elsewhere.

I would bring this up on the ST forum,

Let me guess: On Win10?

Windows in general has several serious issues in the filesystem cache, that leads to delayed updates of files.

Revise does have a polling option that would create a few sec lag. You don’t happen to have that accidentally on?

Thanks, this was indeed the solution. Unbeknownst to me, this was being set in one of the rc files that I had probably copied over from another system.
