Is it possible to link only a few characters of a custom property in a drawing?
We save each part file as a number . for example 333555,
in the drawing we link the file name of the part to a drawing number.
If the part has a revision, we save it with a different filenumber. 333555A (to keep also the old revisions, and no we don't have pdm)
I still want in the drawing as drawing number 333555, and not 333555A, and i would like to be the A displayed in the revisionbox..
I don't think this is possible, but i'll ask anyway :-)
No, it is not possible for a drawing notation to link to just part of a custom property.
It is possible to use equations to automatically generate a custom property that is made from a portion of another custom property or filename or other. Please see
