Plugin changes are only interpreted when I exit and re-enter Studio

Reproduction Steps

Make some changes on the plugin using the Studio’s script editor and run the plugin.

Expected Behavior

Changes made to the plugin script should be interpreted immediately, saving or not.

Actual Behavior

Save or don’t save the plugin after changes, it won’t make a difference.

Workaround

I have to restart Studio every time I make a change to the plugin in order for this change to be interpreted.

Issue Area: Studio
Issue Type: Other
Impact: Moderate
Frequency: Constantly

Can you clarify your reproduction steps? Are you editing your script directly through the debugger plugin instance? What method are you using to save and load plugin changes?

I personally haven’t encountered this issue yet. Any time I have saved to file and used the “Reload Plugin” or used the “Save and Reload Plugin” button directly from the debugger, it always stops any previous instances of the plugin and executes the latest revision.

Thanks for the report! We’ll investigate.
