so, whenever i edit the .conkyrc file, and save my changes, conky just dissapears from my grid.
I tried restarting Conky but that doesn't solve it. Only way to get conky to appear again is to restart the computer
I'm doing small changes like changing colours and align_placements.

The changes I've made are only in the basics, but mine updated on its own.
(I added in disk usage & program start key combos.)
If yours doesn't update itself, try restarting your WM, or loging out & back in.
Conky doesnt always refresh correctly after you save a change, but to be safe, as VastOne said I would start conky from a terminal and see what error your getting. More than likely its a simple typo that is causing the refresh to error out but will still allow it to start fresh. If you post the terminal output we can probably help you more.
I have this problem sometimes. How are you restarting conky? You may need to kill any conky processes then restart.
or use this command in a terminal:
killall -SIGUSR1 conky
Killing conky before restarting has always worked on my systems.
