4. To reset a changed reference back to the original reference, select the reference under Original references, and click Reset.
5. To edit the references of other child features of the selected reference:

b. Under Update child features, select the check boxes next to the child features.
6. To roll the model to the most recent feature from which a reference can be selected for the selected reference, click Roll To. This feature is shown next to Roll To.
