.js file in Visual Studio Code not updating consistently after -watch command

Apologies in advance for the duplicate post but I realized this is probably the better place to ask.

I’m updating a plugin. The watch command isn’t doing the automatic updating of the .js file. I usually have to force a change to the config file or some other brute force hackery (e.g. force a tsc error loop on code.ts) to get the .js file to update.

This is more likely an issue with VS Code rather than Figma, but I’m checking here if anyone has experienced a similar issue and resolved it.
