Custom property don't save in each part

Latest reply on Dec 24, 2015 by Mikael Bolduc

I have a problem with my macro.

In my assembly, I play my macro for change/add custom property to my part. (Work good)

But, It didn't save the change/add in each part. So when i close the file and i open it after, i lost all my property that i had put.

So, what can i do to save each part in the assembly?

 

Thank you
