Custom Property Variable Edit

Question asked by Steve B. on Mar 3, 2016
Latest reply on Mar 3, 2016 by Steve B.

I would like to have the last saved date shown in short date format.  I know you can do $PRP:"SW-Short Date", but that gives you the current date, not the date the document was last saved on.  I also know about $PRP:"SW-Last Saved Date", but that gives you the date in long date format along with the time.  I have tried $PRP:"SW-Last Saved Date (Short Date)", but that only gives the short date (current date in short format, not last saved date in short format).  I'm also aware of the properties.txt file that shows which properties are displayed.  What I need is a way to either change the way SOLIDWORKS displays $PRP:"SW-Last Saved Date" or a way to create new custom property VARIABLES (not just new custom properties).  Any ideas out there?
