    This is the 3rd time I update a style and the customizations start going wack due to "outdated" templates.

    I uploaded the necessary style files. I "imported a style" and overwrote the corresponding disabled parent styles all the while following the steps from here (the theme creator): http://xenforo.com/community/resources/proper-theme-installation-upgrading-and-usage.2942/

    I did this for both UI.X and then for Quark.

    Now I have Outdated Templates on my customized child theme

    I click on MERGE CHANGES on my "outdated" templates and receive this error:
    No previous version of the parent could be found. Merging is not possible.

    I really don't have time to go through and figure out what changes were made EVERY single time I update a style. I know to do every possible customization I can by using EXTRA.css in the future.

    I'm a big fan of customization, but it seems like a huge waste of time having to do this (SRY NO MERGING, REVERTING TEMPLATES, APPLY DIFFERENCES) every time. What am I doing wrong here?
