Copying custom property from part or assembly to drawing

Question asked by Grega Jerin on Jun 8, 2017

I want to copy custom property "Description" from parts and assemblies to corresponding drawings. I can do it manually in Windows Explorer if I sort by Name and then copy Description from part/assembly to drawing, but it is too much work for a lot of files.

I've tried #TASK application, becuse it has a task that can copy custom properties from parts or assemblies to drawings, but I have to select drawings to run the task and not parts and assemblies, which is no go, because I can't sort drawings by Description until I have it written.

Is there any simple option to do this?

I was wondering about double sort in Windows Explorer. First I would sort by Description to get all my parts and assemblies together and then I would do second sort to get all same names (part and drawing or assemblly and drawing) together. I would then choose all files and drag them to #TASK and then in #TASK I would select filter for drawings only.

The main reason I want to do this is because I want to sort drawings in Windows Explorer in group sorted by Description, so I have more simple work when I do tasks for exporting. Mind here that in my Explorer folder some files don't have description yet, because I have to finish them first.

Thanks for help.
