Changing the outputs from an action breaks my agent

I have a PVA topic which calls a PA action, which returns 5 output variables. I added a 6th output variable from the action, but when I return to my PVA topic, the new output variable is not available to be used, and when I try to save the topic, I get an error telling me to delete and re-add the action.



Problem is that when I do delete the action, all references to the existing 5 variables are removed across the topic and need to be reentered one by one to each node that references them.


Does anyone know a workaround, or when this will be improved ?

But you can create the idea here:


I will take my vote certainly.
