Global variable only updates after opening and closing "Manage Equations"

I have come across what appears to be a bug.


I have set global variables for depth, width and height of a sheet metal drawer that allows me to quickly create new configurations of different overall sizes, it all works great but will not update automatically. I have update automatically checked.


I have to go into "Manage equations" and then just click ok, drawer then updates. This drawer is used in multiple assemblies so I have to do this manual update each time which defeats the purpose of setting it up this way.


Ctrl-B or Ctrl-Q doesn't help.


Am I the only one having this issue? Im using Solidworks 2017 premium SP3.
