How to update CAD Source file in Project Template (CAD Document)?

Requirement is to update CAD template of a Project.

Initially, these CAD template is created using a source CAD file (drawing) which includes a format file.
We have new format file and drawing file. Able to update them from A.1 to A.2?

But how will the CAD template created in Project using A.1 version be updated?
We don't have an option to choose source CAD file when checked-out? 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @AndrewK 

I found the solution yesterday. We need to update project (Folders-> Update Project).

Format files are shared from Library to Project. When these are updated, the files in the project are out of sync.
(I was trying to create a new template in the Project or to update the existing template to point to the new format file, but this is not needed. When files got synched to Project, the old template picks up the new format already.) We don't need to update/create templates in the Project.
