Starting with Creo 8, new contextual Update Symbol command on the shortcut menu allows you to update the already placed symbol instances to their latest symbol definition.

User can use this command if they have symbol instances placed in a model or drawing which use older symbol definition files, and they want to update the symbol instances to the most recent definitions.

Limitations: When you work in the drawing environment, the Update Symbol command is applied only to the drawing-owned symbols.

User Interface: Select a symbol, and the contextual commands appear on the mini toolbar and shortcut menu.
