Refreshing CAD files inserted as Objects

Hello all,

I have a title block that I am going to be using for several drawings.  I have inserted this AutoCAD title block as an object and checked the box to create a link.  Supposedly if this box is checked anything that is updated in the CAD file will appear in the map layout drawing.  Trouble is that the insertion size is different so that I have to drag the title block out to be formatted correctly each and every time.  Although occasionally ArcMAP actually will look at the file and nothing has to be moved. to fit together consistently.

Any ideas on how to make ArcGIS look to the CAD drawing to check for changes without reinserting it?  Every time?

Thanks

Dustin
