How to Reload
To reload a document, use the hotkey Ctrl-R (or Command-R on Mac). If prompted, click the button that says Reload Document.
We realize that reloading is a sub-optimal arranagement and more a necessary evil at this time. Down the road, we strive to eliminate the need to reload documents.
