I'm in the middle of setting up a CAD file structure for a company and need a little input.  In going through the posts of file naming, I have it down to a couple of letters for the process, a couple more for a specific machine, then four numbers for specific part/drawing number.  However, it's usually convenient to have a description in there somewhere.  While the user can fill in the File-Properties-Custom-Description field, is there a way to display that data in that field when you go to open a file?  I realize it can show up when you hover over it, but it would be nice to have all the assembly/detail names listed in the file open dialogue box.
