How to correct Designer Event status if it does not update

This article explains how to correct Designer event status if it does not update. In the Designer Workflow-Configuration Window, on the Events tab, there is a checkbox option: Enable Events. When selected, any items in the Events window should be enabled and run as configured. However, in Designer 2019.1.4, the status of events is not updated by the checkbox. Events may remain either enabled or disabled regardless of the checkbox setting.
