We use level of details in large assemblies, for creating views to use in drawings that are made from top level down to individual components all annotative to top level assembly.
The issue we are having is when we create flat patterns of components used in top level drawings they are only annotative to the part not the top level. Therefore if the part requires changes and is being replaced with a new part in the assembly (which are used in multiple top level assemblies) the flat pattern does not update for that assembly drawing. It has to be reinserted and re-dimensioned all again. If the view updated to new part and only some of the dimensions reattached at least it would show up with correct flat layout.

Is this possible to do?
