AF Element Rename Doesn't Affect Formula??

I want to trace a series of formulas so that I can see a high-level dependency between various elements and subsequent formulas.

In essence I would like to determine which inputs to a model affect which outputs, so I can create a dependency matrix.

At present my thinking is:

  1. Rename the "Input" Element
  2. Look for all "Result" formulas that have error (that are therefore dependent, directly or indirectly, on the "Input")
  3. Name the "Input" back


However - there must be some caching or something going on, as when I rename the Input I do NOT see any errors in a dependent formula unless I go into the formula, and manually "Evaluate".

What can I do to have AF recognize the new Element name (and throw the errors I am expecting) as soon as it is renamed??  Or are there any better ways to trace high-level dependency??
