Referenced symbols from resources are not updating

Recommended Posts



I have a problem where for one of my projects referenced resources are not updating properly.


I have a resource file with all my symbols. These symbols then get referenced into various drawings.


Previously, if I updated the resources file, I could then go in all other drawings that referenced it and update them so that all my symbols were up to date. However, lately it stopped updating. Right now I have to break a reference link in every drawing and then relink the symbol from the resource again to see the changes.


Has anyone encountered a similar problem and know how to solve it?


Thank you!
