How do you quickly and easily refresh the appearance of a Linked object?

How do you quickly and easily refresh the appearance of a Linked object?

what do you mean by refreshing the appearance?

sorry, i didn’t get it… shame on me

Outliner → Blender File from drop down → rightclick your file → Reload

Note that having the Outliner set to “Blender File” makes the Viewport slower. This is only a problem in large scenes of course.

thanks. that doesn’t seem discoverable for a novice user. doesn’t feel fast either.

Hmm… it is quite discoverable you just have to read the manual.

But it isn’t really fast, that is true. It could be fast if you could keep the outliner in Blend file mode but you can’t because it slows the viewport down.
