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.

    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?

    Its incredibly tedious replacing images one at a time without this, common use case in uploading optimized versions once you have built out the basic site.

    Wrong yellow color on 32 SVG stars in a project, kind of lame to have to replace them one by one. :P

    Do you guys know if there any updates on this functionality? We think that this will be useful for any webflow user out there.

    Yes please! This would be fantastic when you need to make small changes to logos and just need to replace the file. Or any attachments, downloads, etc.

    YES PLEASE! Really want to be able to export HTML, compress all images, and then bulk re-upload them into the asset manager and replace all identically named assets!
