Updating a sheet metal part after changing a forming tool

Question asked by Julius De Hond on Mar 14, 2019

I'm trying to familiarize myself with the forming tool and its use in sheet metal parts. One thing I noticed is that if I update my custom forming tool in Solidworks's Design Library it doesn't automatically update my part. To me this is very different from how Solidworks treats other related parts. In my case the file is clearly still linked, because if I change the forming tool, and then do "Edit Feature" in my sheet metal part it instantaneously updates (see below). Is this how it's supposed to work? Or am I missing a checkbox somewhere?
