Resetting InDesign's "Document modified outside of book" warning


Question

This feels more like a Super User question than Graphic Design, but I figure someone here will be more likely to know the answer.

Using InDesign 5, I have a "book" collection that I use to keep a bunch of files in one place. Apparently at some point I opened up and modified two of the files apart from the book file, yielding this little warning:

Book palette with warning highlighted

My question is, how do I get rid of the warning, short of removing the file from the book and reinserting it? I figured there has to be a better way. I would have assumed that opening the file from the book, editing, and saving would have reset it, but that hasn't been the case.

I had the same problem using CC, and I knew that no document had been modified outside the indb file. My book has individual indd files for each chapter, and my solution for this error was to update the contents page in the first file (layout/update table of contents) As each chapter was updated the error sign disappeared.
