We have played around with the Custom properties tab builder, Previously we used a CP Macro given to us by our reseller, The CP Macro has a text field for material.
In the new Custom properties Tab builder we linked the material to the Solidworks material Library, the problem we have is that previously we did not assign materials to all of our part files so when we open a part that was not created using the New Custom property Tab builder we lose our material off of our drawings templates.
We definitely don't want to take the time to go through every released part and assign material at this time.
Is there a way to setup the tab builder where if the Material is already filled in (even thought it is just text). That it will ignore the material property assigned to the part?
