Shortcut to capture global variable equation to paste into custom property

I read a post last year that described how to reference an assembly level global variable by copying it in equations and pasting it into a custom property in the drawing file.   This worked and I ended up with a custom property referencing an equation for the global variable.  The equation was something like:  “global var name@assemblyname.sldasm”.  



Now if my life depended on it I cannot remember how to copy the global variable in the equations editor.   I get the name but not the equation.   I can simply type the equation to get it to work but I’m looking for that simple copy paste shortcut.   


Here’s a link describing how to construct the equation.  I’m looking for the shortcut.
