Drive Drawing Custom Property with a Note?

Question asked by Keaton Warn on Jan 3, 2019

Is it possible to make a drawing custom property's text value read from a note on the sheet?

 

For example, I could have a note on the drawing with the text box drive a custom property called "File Status" with whatever is entered in the note box, like "Pre-Release," "Under Release," "Approved," or "I'm sorry for passing the buck." I realize this example is a bit silly since there are better ways to accomplish this given task but I'm curious.

 

What I would like to do in the real world is drive a revision custom property in the drawing with a revision custom property in the part (since I am told the part/assembly file will be treated as such in a PDM workflow.) I can link this part custom property show up to a drawing note, but I don't know of a way to make it populate a drawing custom property or if that is even possible.
