Here is a stand-alone application to display and edit the custom properties and configuration custom properties of a list of files.

It uses SolidWorks Document Manager library to avoid opening each files and speeding up the process.

If you don’t have one yet, follow this link to request your SwDocManager license key (it's free):

Then place it in the text file that will be created in the same folder as the program.
