Updating modified CAD Files in Composer

I'm running into issues with CAD Files that are being updated by our Engineers. When I open a project, Composer notifies me that the CAD File has been modified and to either reload it or open the project and update using the Update Geometry function. The only way to know which file it is (I have multiple assemblies in my project), I have to choose "Yes" to reload.


My practice was to then close this out, re-open the project, choose "No," then to use the Update function to update the assembly with the new version. The problem is, when I re-save the project and re-open, it still receive the "CAD file was modified" notification for the same assembly. The only way I have found around this is to completely remove the assembly, save, re-import the new version and completely re-do my BOM data and Callouts. No huge deal, but if this is what I need to do every time a CAD File is modified, it's going to be a pain.


Why is the Update Function not working to fix a modified CAD File? Am I missing something here?


Thank you!
