Synchronizing form data source with table changes

After a new field of a field group was added to a table, all forms that contain this table as a data source are not automatically updated with this new field or field group. Because of that one cannot use drag and drop to place the field on the form design which makes form development more complex. But there is an easy way to synchronize form data sources with the latest changes to the table. To do that one should right click on the form node in AOT and pick "Restore" command which will do the synchronization.
