Automatic Update on Shrinkwrap parts

Hi all,


One doubt mine that I don't know why but I posted on 2014 Wish list, so, here it is again :smileyhappy:.


About Substitute Shrinkwrap parts, it doesnt automatic update when I use UPDATE or even REBUILD ALL inside the LOD with it, even if I dont break the link with the assembly it doesnt update, so I have to go in each assembly with Substitute parts ( with are many in huge projects) and then verify with "Check for updates" in the correct LOD (which in some cases are more than one per assembly). Is there a way to update them direct from the main assembly with rebuild all or something like that ?


Thanks again

Anyone got any idea about it ?


Right now I'm updating more then 80 parts as Shrink, thats a little trouble.

The way I've found, the easier, is user the WINDOWS Search in the  projects folder looking for all files with a sulfix of _SUB-TYPE (2 types each Assy) and then open one by one and use check for updates.

If had any tool to make that easier, or a simple UPDATE in the master assembly to update all sub assemblies suistitutes..
