Getting SW built-in property "Last Saved By" into Custom Properties

Hello Forum:


I'm not sure if this is the best forum to post this in - please correct me if needed.


I am trying to add a Custom Property "Last Saved By", which would automatically be filled

in whenever somebody else takes a component and makes any change to it.

This would be more beneficial to me than the original author.


I can get to a built in property "SW-Last Saved By" when creating an annotation on a drawing (using Link to Property).

I can even get to that property when adding an annotation/note to the part (and have it show up on the screen of that model).


But I can't get to that value in the "Custom Properties."

Or can I? Is there some kind of trick of how to format the expression?

Am I missing something obvious?


Thank you for any pointers,
