Just stumbled across this to me unknown trick, but which I figure a lot of us could benefit from: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v0jIoWxaG08

Very handy if you are using workspaces in your assemblies, and it’s become a mess. Did anyone else already know this? Thanks @Roy_Mutalik !

    @fnxf I'm so glad you found some use from this! I've definitely found it to be helpful, so I figured it was worth a share.

    The key to this trick is when you CANCEL the dialog as I did in the video. This causes the references to be updated in the active workspace where you are working (as shown). Note that if you actually SUBMIT the candidate, it only updates these references in the version/revision that is created as a result.

    Happy Release Managing!
