How can I preserve pin properties when updating symbols?

We use single pin symbols for connectors which are sprinkled throughout our schematics.  Pin numbers are assigned as the schematic is captured and are typically fixed by external requirements.  We also have other pin properties that are used for documentation as well as driving some internal userware.  We have a need to update our library symbols to adjust text settings, but DxDesigner > Update Symbols, blows away pin properties, though instance properties are retained.  This is a very serious issue for us!  Is there any way to preserve pin properties when updating symbols?
