Setting default weldment cut-list properties

I've recently been working with weldments a lot and have been setting up templates for cut-lists in drawings and for BOM's to make the process easier for us.  Unfortunately I have come upon one tedious bottleneck and I very much dislike tedious.  Upon creating a weldment and populating the cut-list with structural members and/or extruded members, the default cut-list properties has either only a MATERIAL properties or -LENGTH, MATERIAL, ANGLE1, ANGLE2, DESCRIPTION- properties for an extruded base only, or structural member and extruded base weldment, respectively.

 

What I would like to do is when creating a weldment it automatically adds properties for WEIGHT, DESCRIPTION and PARTNUMBER for each cut-list item.  In a weldment of 10-20 or more parts, this get's very tedious and error-prone when having to add each of these properties to every single cutlist item.

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to save a default setup, or edit the current defaults?
