Changing mesh in animation blueprint?

I have a skeleton which is supporting a number of different meshes for different characters. Each character has its own animation blueprint. They are very similar since they all use the same skeleton. So I’m copying a master animation blueprint and renaming it accordingly. The problem is that the displayed mesh in the blueprint is that from the master and there doesn’t seem to be anyway to change the associated mesh. Or is there? I’m not seeing an option to reassign the mesh. Can it be done?

You can use the setSkeletalMesh in your characterBP

That doesn’t fix the issue. It has the correct mesh when playing in the game. The problem is that the ABP editor is showing the wrong mesh. You can change it temporarily, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to do it permanently.
