When you import a file from a different cad package, there
are no custom
properties assign to the file.
The problem with this is that when you place the file in the vault
will automatically assign an auto number
because the custom property "part number" is not in the file.
Yes we can go in and add the properties but it will take time
adding to the vault. (20 total custom properties) I do have a
program that will populate the properties,
(propagator) not all users have access to this file andI can not
keep track on who imports what.
What I did try, in tools>options> default templates you can
turn on to
ask for a template to use. I can select that template
"without a auto part number" all the custom properties are there
is a empty part. (no imported geometry)
I also created a "starter file" outside the vault and added it as a
template location. This does not work.
