If you navigate to a 'referenced' object via tasks metadata (ex. Referenced subprocess, referenced form...), update the object and save it with a different 'name' on action 'save and close'. This name does not get updated in 'Referened *' metadata field on task that it is set on
You have to go through the steps twice to 'open > save and exit' to get the task to update the modeler
You have to repeat the open and save sequence for any referenced item to get it to update in the parent object referencing that item. This is irrelevant of type of status (collapsed/non collapsed, embedded/non embedded) of the referenced item.
This is extremely problematic for customers who export/import and update referenced objects for processes they are trying to duplicate and tweak. It is not obvious this is occurring and is quite misleading. Especially when working with tasks forms subprocesses and nested ones of those.
