Can't disable file watcher auto-save


According to the docs:

To invoke the File Watcher as soon as any changes are made to the source code, select the Auto-save edited files to trigger the watcher checkbox.
When the checkbox is cleared, the File Watcher starts upon save (File | Save All) or when you move the focus from JetBrains Rider (on frame deactivation).


I absolutely have auto-save edited file to trigger the watcher disabled and trigger on external changes disabled.  The program I have set in the file watcher will always run as soon as a type something no matter what.


Is there something I am missing?

I fixed it. Live Edit feature was triggering the auto-saving.
