Page Layout installed via Feature doesn't update/refresh when changed in File System


  • When I install a Master Page via a Feature, I'm able to go into C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\MyFeatureName\MasterPage.master, edit the MP and then immediately go and refresh a page in IE and see the change.

    This doesn't seem to be the case with Page Layouts installed via a Feature though. I cannot drill into the file system, make a change in the Page Layout and then go and refresh a page in IE to see the change. It seems like I have to deactivate and reactivate the Feature to see the Page Layout change. Why is this the case? Is there any way around deactivating and reactivating the Feature?
