Is it possible to prevent the "files have changed" popup for certain files?

Is it possible to prevent the “files have changed” popup for certain files?

I have a save.json file, and whenever I test my game, the file updates, and I get that file changed popup. Would be nice if I could exclude that file from displaying that popup, and would mean I don’t have to keep clicking on that reload button.

I don’t think it’s possible to do it for certain files but you can enable Auto Reload Script on External Change in the Editor Settings under Text Editor / Behavior and the files will reload automatically.

If the save.json file is intended to change when the game runs, you should store it outside the game directory, as user://save.json for example.

I moved it to the user:// folder. I also turned on the auto reload script for all other files. I didn’t know that was an option.
