Editing With External Text Editor - How To Run?


I’d like to edit TestPad.lua in an external editor. Is there a quick way to get that file to load after saving from the external editor? It looks like the only way to run a file is

  • ‘Command + R’ Save and Run the current Tabs File

If TestPad.lua is already loaded in the Renoise’s editor, it does not automatically pick up the changes from the external editor. It looks like it’s necessary to close, open again, and cmd+r to run.

Maybe this can help?

Cut and paste from:

Hi there,

Thanks for digging this out of the docs for me.

Please note that this does not work for “TestPad.lua”. _AUTO_RELOAD_DEBUG only works for tools, xrnx bundles.
