Has anyone using SW 2016 noticed that not all of the custom properties are being pushed to the drawing sheet? I have had a custom property file set up for years that worked fine. Now that I am in 2016 not all of my part properties are working.
I put in a custom property in the part for "description"
In the drawing field that is linked to this custom property nothing shows up.
Prior to upgrade this worked fine.
Did you try to relink?
Yes I did try to re-link. I also tried starting a new custom property file ans nothing still......I assume you haven't seen the same issue?
I didn`t meet the same problem in SW2016
Upgrading from one version to another can have a disconnect when...
You install the newer version it is supposed to do a clean uninstall of the old version and then do a clean install for the new version. The first thing I would check is where are is your information being pulled from
Check where your custom property.txt is and where it is searching for in the folders. Here I have everything in a template folder on our server and when we upgrade all I need to do is reset the folder.
Thank for the tip. The first thing I did was check the file locations and template locations. This didn't fix it. I think I will have to email my templates to Solidworks at this point.
Do you use Custom Property Tab Builder??
Yes, I do use the property tab builder.
Then check one thing in your tab builder..
In the Tab Builder file when you select the "Show on Configurations Specific Tab" - and you have the information in the "Show on Customs Tab" then it acts like it doesn't know where to pull the info from...
I screwed up on this in the past where I had the selection at about 50-50, what a mess that was, had to redo a lot of stuff.
Plus if you use Task Scheduler to update any of your Custom Properties, Task Scheduler won't update your info if you select the Show on Configurations Specific Tab
I had a situation like that and my problem was that I was using all capitols, once I changed the text it worked perfect
Same problem here.... Drawing custom properties vs. sheet properties?
Nobody seems to have a definitive answer.
