Custom properties templates default to reading a file location that no longer exists

Question asked by Camden Wallraff on Mar 20, 2018

I am am running into a small issue, where the custom property templates aren’t immediately read because they are for some reason referencing a folder that no longer exists (I moved them to a saved location from each client), even though it also tells me to put the properties in question into the folder that clearly has them, and using the dropdown, I can get to the properties tab that I want to use so it's not broken completely, but in the long run I will save everyone's time by having the properties be defaulted when a part or assembly is created.


These properties were sent to us from our clients so we can use a "mirrored" launch version of what the client uses so when we send them files, they fit right into their system.

Another small thing I noticed is that sometimes the dropdown options for the properties is incomplete, like it is reading an older version of the property file. Setting the file to -None- and back usually fixes the problem, but I wanted to know if there was a way not to need the workaround?


I was able to repeat the "older version" problem when using misumi's inCAD software, where even a -none- and back or reload/restart wouldn't fix it. Pulling from a library file, all the relevant equations and properties are there, but not so in this case, also the custom properties manager no longer yells at me doing it this way.

I have Tried to reference the solution posted here but I am unsure how to re-save the template.
