Common Issues and FAQs
No, updating the theme won’t reset your site or settings done through the Theme Options panel, products or pages. The only thing you should be concerned about is custom coding, if done by altering the original theme’s files.

Make sure you went through the Product Activation which enables theme updates for your site. If you cannot find the Product Activation screen in your dashboard, it means you’re using an older version, which doesn’t have the automatic updates feature implemented or the product activation screen. The way to go is to update the theme using the Envato Toolkit or manually, by deactivating and deleting the old version and uploading the new one, which can be downloaded from ThemeForest.
