    PROPERTY UPDATE DOESN'T SHOW IN CUSTOM PROPERTIES TAB UNTIL AFTER REBUILD

    Carrie Ives

      I have Deepak Gupta's :Copy Model Description Custom Property to Drawing" macro. When I run it, the description property in my drawing updates. I can tell it updated by checking under File>Properties. If I look at the Custom Property Tab, this update isn't shown. (In fact, the old value is shown, and I can change it back to the old value by hitting apply from the custom property tab.) If I do a rebuild before selecting the Custom Property Tab, the correct value is displayed.

       

      I would like to add a rebuild to the end of the macro, but I do not want to have a window for the user to dismiss. I would prefer to do just a standard rebuild not a forced rebuild. I'm sure there are samples of how to do this, but I have not been able to find them. Can someone point me in the right direction?

       

      We are using SolidWorks 2015, SP 5.0

       

      Thanks,
