I am adding a variable to a file card via the SW PDM card editor. The variable is linked to a custom property named "Description." The edit-box is blank until I check out the file, modify, save it, and check the file back in. Then I can see the file card variable description from the custom property in the SW part or assembly file. Shouldn't this edit-box field update automatically? Also, when I create a new sldprt or sldasm and add it to the vault, the edit-box value for the "Description" custom property comes in fine right from the start. Almost seems the variable does not see the SW file custom properties until a new version of the SW file is created or new SW files are created.
Any guidance will be greatly appreciated,
