Assets not showing correctly when replaced

I am working on an app which uses a number of HTML pages saved as assets which are opened in the webviewer. If I edit the page leaving the file name the same and then replace (first delete then add) the file in the app, the original file is displayed and not the new edited one. This happens on both iOS and android and with both the companion and published apps. But only if the file has been opened in the app before. If the app had NOT accessed the file previously, the replaced version is the one that is displayed. Is there a way to clear the cache so that the earlier file does not show up?

This sample project demonstrates the issue.

Do you mean that the HTML pages loaded into the project as assets do work for you? For me these arrangement does not work from the mobile. Only when previewed from the computer.

Yes, in the sample project, the file “First1.html” is loaded as an asset. If you delete that file and replace it with another with the same name, when you next run the app in the companion, you will continue to see the original, not the replaced file. Yes, if you use the “Preview”, the new file shows correctly, not the old.

As I said, there is a known issue with HTML as assets when run from the mobile.
