Replace Files in Asset Manager

We use the Asset Manager to host some pdf files that we want to make public. It would be super helpful if we could could replace files in the asset manager instead of having to upload new. 

Replacing files would allow us to update the file itself without having to update all the pages the file may already be linked to.

    This feature is one of the most important ones for easy website management.

    replacing images from the file manager would be much easier than changing them everywhere used.

    It's now 2022, this is a generally obvious and much needed feature. If you use the CMS to host PDF resources or file assets that are located in multiple locations across the site, updating the original source asset by replacing the file, would then update it across the site in one process, vs what it happening now.

    Give us access to the server if you are not going to build this in. That way we can update/replace the file like web designers have been able to since the start of the internet...

    Hey Webflow, why is this not sorted? You have this developement money but you're missing some basics which let down the app. and make larger business site builds a bit of a joke.

    We have a very content-heavy website and would really love this feature to avoid bloating our assets panel with a million old images we're afraid to delete because we don't know where they might be used on the site.

    We need to be able to update images uploaded to the hosting server. I would add, we really need the link to be on the domain for the site... this is a very commonly used functionality for file access. Example: can always be updated and the link is on the correct URL.

    Please get this added! Realising you have to go and replace an asset one-by-one all over a site instead of doing it centrally provokes one of those "I hate Webflow, I should use another platform" moments.

    How is this still not implemented or am I missing something? This thing HAS to be done. Like really the whole platform looses its value just for this small thing. U make huge project and use the same asset multiple times. You decide to change anything on the asset and you need to go through the whole project to change them? That's like really annoying. Even simplified website designing platforms has this option. How is Webflow don't have it? Its been requested since 2016 and still nothing?
