PDF is not updating when editing the instructable Answered

Hi guys. I've noticed that the PDF version of the instructable does not update when I edit it. Here is an example:
https://www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Synth-Briefcase-V2/ when I click "Download", the PDF file contains content, that was published the first time. None of my edits are reflected in there.
Pretty sure it's a server side problem, but just in case I'm using Chrome Version 61.0.3163.100 on MacOS 10.12.6.

we cache these pdf's upon first request after publish action to save ourselves the work of re-making the pdf every time a user chooses to download it. I went ahead and cleared the cache on this one listed here. then re-requested it and made sure it was same as i saw in your most recent version of the instructable

should be good to go now.

I don't think it's a service problem, I don't think it's supposed to be updated, but I don't know why.

If you want it to get updated contact service(at)instructables.com
