Navisworks 2012: Assigned Materials Reset on Refresh

When working with Navisworks Manage 2012, I am running into issues getting Materials to stay assigned to objects.  I begin with a fresh, new file and Append a DWF file.  I then go through the file and apply materials to various objects throughout the DWF using the Presenter.  However, when there is an update to the DWF file and I refresh with F5, all of the Material assignments reset and the original DWF layer colors come through.


Has anyone ever encountered this before and know a workaround or what I am doing wrong?  It doesn't seem to matter if I save the file out as an NWF or if I use DWFx files:  the result is the same.
