Styles: Automatically update an mxd's layer file?

Good morning! I am fine-tuning a style with multiple symbols, and each time I tinker with the style, I am forced to re-select/re-assign the newly adjusted label in the Label Manager. Is there a way to "refresh" such that an adjustment to a style will automatically adjust the associated symbology? Thank you!

Mapping Center Answer:

There is no way to do this automatically at this time. The quickest and easiest thing to do is simply re-select the style on the Layer Properties - Labels tab or in the Label Manager dialog. However, you can also edit the symbols in the Layer Properties or Label Manager and then just save the edited symbol to your personal style (you can then copy it to other styles) -- this might be a faster workflow depending on what you are doing.
