CONFIGURATION SPECIFIC CUSTOM PROPERTY IN TITLE BLOCK.

      We have started adding weights to the title block of our drawings. I have changed the start parts to create the custom property WEIGHT and set that equal to the model's mass. This works well for parts and weldments but, I now have an assembly where several of the sub-assemblies as well as the assembly it's self have reference parts in them. I can create configurations having no reference parts and giving me the correct weight but, how do I get the drawing format template to select the weight from the No Reference configuration rather than the standard one?

     As I typed this I thought that I could add a WEIGHT configuration to the assembly start part and link the template to the custom property for the configuration. But then I would have to  rely on everyone remembering to populate the extra configuration even for weldments that don't need an extra configuration.

     Does anyone have a better method for dealing with this?
