Configuration publisher of already inserted parts

Hi everyone,


I have a part that is already inserted in several assemblies.

I just used Configuration Publisher on that part to create the selection filter.


The part that is already inserted in my assembly doesn't show the configuration publisher options, however if I insert that same part a second time then the option shows up.

It however only seems to be available for the second instance of the part.


Is it possible to update the already inserted part to show the configuration publisher option?

That part is also used in other assemblies, and I would like to avoid having to go into all of the assemblies to "replace" it.

I've already tried doing a Replace part but that didn't work.


I use Solidworks 2015 SP4.0
