You can update widgets from the catalog so that any new, updated, or deleted widgets in the catalog are reflected in your local client.
Update is based on the Catalog server URL
and Categories to install
settings specified on the Widgets preferences panel. Widgets are installed or updated if you are assigned the widget's specified category in the PLUGIN_CUSTOMIZATION.INI file preference or have specified that category on your Widgets preference panel. Widgets are also updated if you installed them using drag and drop from the configured catalog.
To force an update, click Catalog
-> Update Widgets
from the My Widgets options menu.
While you can manually check for updates using this menu option, the update interval is used to automatically check for updates and refresh your widgets with updates from the catalog. If a category that a user is subscribed to is removed from the catalog, your widgets from that category are removed the next time catalog update occurs.
