BUG: Footage reverts to old versions when using "Replace Footage" in Project panel.
I have encountered a bug with Premiere Pro CC 2019 V13.0.2.
Steps to replicate:
1. Right click footage (let's call it V1.mov) in project panel, select Replace Footage
2. Select V2.mov to replace.
3. Footage is updated in all sequences it's used as expected.
4. Save and close the project.
5. Another editor opens the same project on a different machine.
6. Clips using V2.mov are named "V2.mov" but are pulling V1.mov
Expected result for Step 6:
The sequence would load the replacement footage in Step 2.
This has caused some head ache for the production I'm on. Replace Footage was used to update credits with corrected names. Upon reopening the file elsewhere, the credits had reverted to the previous uncorrected version, but still had the newer file name. I'm in the middle of a production now, so updating to CC 2019.5 isn't an option at the moment, so I haven't tested this there.

Hey there Kristofer,
We're running into this exact issue as well. Have you had any luck/success in figuring out a workaround? Some folks suggested Shared Projects, and we tried that route, but no luck.
I'm really hoping that you found something? I've started a discussion here:
And I also posted a UserVoice bug, but as you can imagine, that's been a ghost town:
