    I'm noticing that pressing F5 does not pick up changes. It just says something like...

    ------ Deploy has started: Project: my project - sandbox ------
    Search for changed files has started [22:25:54.726].
    The changed files were not found.
    Time Elapsed 00:00:00.002
    ========== Deploy: Project: my project - sandbox succeeded ==========

    Pressing F5 a second time behaves as-expected and does the build. 

    At first I thought that maybe the time check only had seconds resolution and I was just pressing F5 too quickly but I know I've seen this happen with a delay of several minutes between when I stopped changing the code and pressed F5. Sometimes it seems to happen almost every time, sometimes it seems like I go hours without seeing it.

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for your post.

      We have been faced with this issue and our developers are working on this right now.

      The reason for this is that when you deploy unsaved file - not always changes are saved before this deployment, in some cases, the deployment is started before your changes are saved.

      So, as a workaround until we will release a fix for this issue, you can use the 'Ctrl+Shift+S' to save your changes and then please launch the deployment process.

      The next version of the IDE that will include the necessary fix will be available for you in several weeks.

      Best Regards,
