When creating a new solidworks part, I fill out the Descritpion in the Custom tab under File Properties. While saving the file to the vault, the Description is deleted in the part's data card and deleted in the File Properties.
I've tried the exact same thing on my colleague's computer and the Description is not deleted. I had a colleague log into my computer and try, the Description is deleted. Seems like it must be a local setting on my computer and not an EPDM issue but I have no idea where to look.
