Reloading page definition without deleting pages?

During development I want to make sure that all definitions and inline-translations are correctly setup in the code, so after I add extra fields, I want to refresh the definitions and not add/remove the fields manually. Can I do this without also deleting the pages?

Let’s say I add a few fields the the headerSettings and want to refresh. The only way I know of is to delete the definition in admin and in the database. But this also removed the settings page and all the data in it. Is there another way?

No, currently the definitions will not be re-built without deleting the pagetype.

To solve this you would need to do your modifications to existing pagetypes and pages in a startup task.

However, just adding new fields to an existing pagetype definition should work.
