Hello all,


My company recently switched to 2017, and I am missing a feature that I was sure was available in 2015.


I am trying to link a configuration specific custom property while editing the sheet format. For example, I have a model that has two configurations: configuration 1 and configuration 2. EACH of these configurations has a custom property (config. 1, prop. 1/config. 1, prop. 2/config. 2 prop. 1/ config. 2, prop. 2). I cannot link these properties while on the "Edit Sheet Format" screen. See screen shots below:
