If the refreshed view in designer does not match the view in the client, then it is not refreshing (indexing) in the client properly. In designer, review the view properties indexing options to ensure they are aggressive enough for your needs. Even if you don’t change the indexing options, go to the view in the client and use Shift + F9. As long as you have high enough rights in the database, this should re-build the view from scratch.
Hope that helps.
