CC parts saved as custom not updating thumbnails

When inserting a Content Center part into an assembly as a custom part instead of as a standard one, then opening and modifying the part, the thumbnail for the new file is not updating to show the modifications.  In this particular instance: a pipe blind flange with an off-center hole drilled through the face.  The thumbnail still shows as the original (and fairly pixelated) CC blind flange.

 

Any suggestions on forcing the thumbnail to update?

Go to iproperties go to the save tab

change to Active window hit capture then hit apply then change back to Active Component iso view on save hit apply again and close. Thumbnail should update.

Actually, "Active Component Iso View on Save" alone works fine for my needs.

 

Thanks!
