I would like to auto-revert some remote image/pdf files.

I have activated the option (setq auto-revert-remote-files t) and see that the file effectively auto-revert. Yet the image does not update. I need to go to the image buffer and toggle between editing or viewing the C-c C-c to see the changes. Is there a way to avoid the last step?

This sounds similar to Emacs bug 21598, see here. Could you pls check whether it is the same problem?

  • I think if we can set (image-toggle-display) each time after remote file is reverted it should work. but my knowledge is limited here.
