I need to have the custom properties in the drawing file to populate the PDF datacard automatically when it is created from the drawing, or in a subsequent PDM action. If a PDF action is used, it cannot invoke a solidworks session. It must stay within PDM. Is there a way to do this? SImply, the drawing of the same name as the PDF must share the same Custom Properties values.
The PDF Task Add-in would be great, but that invokes Solidworks, and has some risks that will not work for our organization. Does anyone know of a way to have custom properties copied?
