Subassembly Composer - Update existing Custom SAs

What's the easiest way to update an existing custom SA once it's in the drawing.


For example i have some coding that I'd like to change and this particular SA is in use 10 times in my file in different ways. I used the Subassembly Composer to create the original custom SA.


It's not as easy as saving the file over top of the existing .pkt file, if it was I wouldn't be here. It seems to be behaving like a block would. I need to redefine the Subassembly in order for it to update in the drawing. How is best to do this and is there any tricks to the process. When do i need to open and close Civil in order to apply the new changes.


Do I need to update the SA in my tool palette as well?  Any and all information that will save me smashing my computer would be great. Thanks. :smileywink:
