References and proxies problem.

I have a prop that is saved in two separate Maya files one is low res and the other is a high res.

i am importing the high res version as a reference. and then add the low res version as a proxy to the reference.

The problem is when i start placing the reference in my scene, and then reload my proxy the proxy will not update position according to its reference.

Is there a command in referencing that can do that for me or should i script it manually?


Thanks.

Not sure if this is the solution you're looking for or if this is some other issue, but came to mind:

Are you using the "group" option when referencing? (or just grouping/parenting the reference to something after import)? Or are you just moving the reference directly? You don't want to do the latter, as then your transform gets stored as an change to the reference which gets blown away when you switch files. If you have a group (or locator, or w/e) that's positioning it, that will hold the transform and whatever reference is under it will just inherit that, even if you switch files around.
