I have a note in title block linked to the state of the part on the drawing. When the part is new, checked into the Vault but not released, its state is "WIP." However this state does not show up on the drawing. When the part is in the next states (Pending Approval, Released), those states DO show up on the drawing. And then when I make a new revision, and the part goes back into the initial WIP state, then WIP does show up on the drawing.
So why it doesn't show up the first time around?
