Just what I was looking for. Would be great to have this option in the preferences, something like sync: always / ask / never.

Thanks so much! Was never one regularly update Skim but this was not a good update. Great fix!

The above workaround

defaults write -app Skim SKAutoReloadFileUpdate -boolean true

worked for me until I updated Skim, now it no longer works, and despite what Christiaan said elsewhere, the Auto button is still missing...
Thanks for any help, this is really annoying!

version 1.4.17 Skim

version 3.2 Aquamacs

OSX10.10.5

The above workaround stopped working for me to. Enabling the sync setting from the preferences did work though:
sync
