  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2018.4):

    File changes are discovered during Refresh.
    If there's no refresh (auto of manual) file changes won't get reflected.
    If there's a manual reimport while the file is modified but before a Refresh then the current pipeline will use the in memory representation (unchanged) with the time stamp of the modified file, so the next refresh will not see the file change.
