As a newbee, I've not seen an option I'm looking for in my first 10 days.

SPS package manager has an option to install an SPS package via web or via local storage if it is not yet installed. SPS package manager provides also an option to force reinstallation via web if already installed. What I'm missing is the option to force reinstallation via local storage. What did I miss finding?
Where do I have to look for this feature?

It seems now that the missing option exists for some SPS packages like RJ TextEd while being missing for others like TextEditorPro. So what's the reason for such a difference?
What options exist to handle this difference?

The force update is only available with already installed programs and through online packages.
For all the program not yet installed you have two different options instead: install from web site (default for massive operation too), install from local package.

That doesn't seem true. It seems true initially but may change on context. My request is to have the option of forced update with already installed tools not only via online packages but also via local packages. And it seems that this option isn't available initially as you claimed.

But if I use the icon in SPS package manager for manual download, it seems that this opens the desired choice (of forced update via local package) in context menu, not before. I observed this difference at least twice yet, not knowing if it is deterministic. I couldn't find a corresponding note in the manual for advanced users neither. So is my request already implemented and the observed behaviour deterministic although not yet described?
