On my drawing template, I have a custom property with value $PRP:"Date"
Sometimes I want to hide the date, so I blank the property, set it's value to " " (space). This works fine when manually editing the custom properties inside Solidworks.
However, when I try to get EPDM to blank that property, it does not work. It blanks it in the datacard, but does not push the blank into the solidworks file.
When I rebuild, the datacard updates to match the evaluated value of the custom property ("01 jan 01").
Its like there is a safety built into EPDM to not overwrite any custom properties containing $PRP... =/
Any ideas for how to blank this property with EPDM? Thanks!
Curiously, if I used EPDM to set the property to $PRP:"Date", it shows just like that in the datacard. And it can be overwritten by EPDM.
But after solidworks rebuild the datacard updates to evaluate the $PRP..., and then EPDM can't overwrite it again.
