Replace assembly in draft drawings

Hello, 

 

This is what I am trying to do but I cannot get the dimensions to remain attached: 

 

1. Import step file into ST9, save as assembly (successful)

2. Create draft(s) (successful)

3. Import new step file of same geometry with changes (Same names for all assemblies and parts) [Successful]

4. Update draft(s) for file with the minor changes [Unsuccessful: all dimensions detach]

 

I have tried using 'Design Manager' with 'replace part' and also 'Edit links' in the draft document. Neither have been successful. 

 

If there is a way of doing this simply so that it can be done every time I need to important an updated geometry that would be great please

Probably should ask this in the Solid Edge forum.  This is targeted to the Free 2D product which does not include the 3D parts...
