With all iparts I now have an ilogic rule to rebuild all before save. It works around this issue since Autodesk won't fix it.

-How did you do this? In iparts my iLogic options are all greyed out. I cannot create any rules or manage triggers...

Hi! I assume that you have an iPart factory file where you are making changes to, while the iPart member files have been documented in the drawing. The reason why you are seeing the behavior is that the part files pointed by the drawing views are the iPart member files (under iPart folder). The changes you make on the iPart factory file has not yet reached to the members.

You simply need to open the iPart factory file -> go to the browser -> expand the table node -> select all members -> right-click -> Generate Files. Then the changes made in the factory file will be sent to the member files. Next time you open the drawing, the views should be up-to-date.

In the drawing right click on the drawing view and edit view. Then check the little box which makes the drawing view associative. The drawing view will now update.
