Can I tell Rstudio to not invalidate all chunks outputs when reloading the (externally modified) Rmd file

Hello, I would like to be able to use Rstudio for the notebook capabilities, ie to execute chunks of code and see the inline outputs within the document (vanilla html_notebook).
But when I change the underlying Rmd file externally (say I edit the file in vim) then when I click back on the Rmd file in Rstudio the file is reloaded and updated (great) but all the chunk outputs are invalidated (dispair ). Is there anyway to tell Rstudio to not invalidates the chunks, basically do as if I was changing the file in Rstudio, as opposed to externally?

Many thanks if you can help
