Updating in master documents

In a master document, in the Navigator I select a subdocument, then click EDIT. The subdocument opens, I edit it, and then Close it, thus returning me to the master. In the Navigator I click UPDATE, but my recent changes do NOT appear.

The only way I've found to make them appear is to exit the master, then re-enter it and answer YES when asked "Update all links?" What am I missing?

Regardless what my signature says, I'm running 4.1.5 on Windows 10.

Correct.

To see any edits updated (note if you edit a sub-document you do not have to save it before the edits show) you must either

a) l-click the UPDATE icon and open the drop down menu and select ALL, or
b) r-click the sub-document > Update > choose SELECTION (to update just that file) or ALL to update all.
