Hello fellow SolidWorkers,

 

First time post here

Can you please tell me how to write to the summary information, Summary tab fields (such as Author, Keywords,Comments, Title, Subject) with a custom built Property Tab?

I am using SolidWorks 2015 SP5.

In the above scenario I get an Author field added among the custom property fields, however I wish to directly edit the summary tab's Author field.

 

In case this cannot be done with the property tab builder, can you give me an idea how to make a custom property tab (a macro?) that does have access to these fields- or do you recommend not filling the summary tab fields at all?
