Summary Block not updating

I have a very simple SUM summary block. When I update some data in the records that are feeding the calculation for this SUM, the value depicted in the summary block is not updating until I refresh the page, or until I click to edit the settings of the block. Surely, this isn’t by design…?

I’ve noticed similar behaviour with Chart blocks - sometimes they update in real time and sometimes (usually in fact) they don’t. This has certainly been like that for many months.

Thanks for the reply on this–glad to know I’m not imagining this. Hard to let it go, though. In some contexts no biggie, but a real deal-breaker in others. Seems like a bug or design flaw…? Am I wrong on this?
