Auto-refresh of Referenced Design Layer View Ports?

Recommended Posts

Now that VW supports multiple views / windows / open files at once it would be nice to have a way to force referenced design-layer view ports to update in real- or near-real-time.

 

As it is now, when I make a change in referenced file (say, moving the height of a fence panel,) in order to see the change in the other file with the DLVP in it, in the main file I have to do:

Tools --> Organization..., then select the "References" tab, then select the referenced file, then click "Update", after which the changes propagate from the master file to the DLVP.

 

It'd be nice to have a check-box in a DLVP for "Auto-update this viewport whenever the referenced design layer changes."

 

Is there any work around for this? Editing the workspace doesn't work as it doesn't allow for auto-navigation within the "Organization..." modal dialog box, nor for assigning a shortcut to the "Update" button in that dialog box.

 

EDIT: this should be posted in General -- moderators, please consider moving it. Thanks.
