Hey MT4 World... 

Hoping someone can help with a problem... 

I have an EA running with about eighty variables...

When I open MetaEditor and update just ONE or TWO variables in my EA - and then save/compile... 

And then open MetaTrader - and click on Expert Adviser -> Properties -> I see the variables have not updated in the EA yet...

Clicking on "Inputs -> Reset" does the job, but I have 28 pairs running at any given time, and really do not want to have to manually update the variables on EACH chart every time I make a code change... 

I'm assuming there's a hidden cache file somewhere, or something else going on with the compiler...

Really hoping someone might have an answer to this problem...

I'm using MQL4 Version 4 Build 646.

Thanks so much!

jolQ - are you saying you think it's actually an error/bug in MQL4 and 5?

It's not a bug, it's a feature.

Conversely, it seems that inputs used in strategy tester that never used to change on re-compilation of the EA code are changed now.
