When I'm working on a part and go to File>Properties, the dropdown boxes are grey and I no longer have any options to choose from such as: Material, Weight, Company, DrawnBy etc.
Did they remove them in 2012 or did I screw something up?
No it still works like it always had. Wonder if the custom property list file has been deleted or moved somehow.
Anyway to fix it? I'd like to have my options back there so I can select company name and such.
I looked through the options. The properties.txt file exists in the programdata/solidworks folder where it should, and does have the values.
Not sure why it isnt working.
The options for file locations are also pointing to the correct location.
Can you show a screen shot of what you are seeing?
This is what I see.
When you select Edit List does your properties.txt file data show up?
When you select in the grey in the Property Name column, what happens?
No, when I edit list it's just blank. properties.txt data doesn't show up.
When I select in the grey window it just allows me to type in the box. When I'm done the grey part shows up below what I just typed.....so I can enter properties that way but that's time consuming to say the least.
Are you really sure you are pointing at the correct properties.txt file under System Options > File Locations and that that file has your properties in it?
I know you said all was correct. I would double check. Also restart your computer if you haven't already.
Did you have template files setup? Were they in a location on your network? Are you pathed properly to them under Default Templates and File Locations?
