You can evolve boards (periodically edit the schematics --> export 
netlist + annotations --> merge new netlist into PCB --> place new 
components + edit traces --> loop). You just can't "retroactively" edit 
the schematics by placing new components to the PCB design + editing 
traces, and importing the implied changes back into the schematic editor.

Best regards,
