Include Attachments Issue

Hi there,


I'm using SW 2009 5.1, and have come across an interesting issue with attachments.


Let's say I make a new part and check it into the vault.  The part has a decal on it, so I attach that decal file (a .jpg) to the part, and make sure that I have the "include attachments" option selected in the PDM options.  When I check that part out again, the attachment is also downloaded from the vault to my machine.


Now, let's say I make a change to the part, and check it back in.  In the vault view, the attachment appears to be still attached.  However, when I check the part out (with latest revisions option), the attachment is no longer included in the download.


So, does this mean I have to re-attach the decal file every single time I check it back in?  This doesn't make sense to have to remember to check in all attached files each time the part is revised...


Any thoughts would be appreciated!
