.dwg doesn't stay the way it was made as you change the assembly

I have an assembly that changes daily and drawings made at each step of the way using .dwg format.  The problem is, that when I add something to the assembly, it addes it to the drawings already made and as a result losses dims and notes that I made.  Is there a way to set the dwgs so that all new items added to the model automaticly are no visible in the drawings that were already created.  I spend a lot of time changing old drawing to what they used to be.  Thanks.

Use the previous days iam file as a sub assembly in a new iam and add the new stuff there instead of the original iam.

 

though I have to wonder what your workflow really is.
