Component Description in tree shows expression, not value

I would like to display the component description in the tree (right click on tree>tree display>show component descriptions); however, the component description in the tree is showing up as the value/text expression in the custom property, not the actual evaluated value.

 

In my summary information dialog box, I have a custom property name as "Description" with the value/text expression is "$PRP:"SW-Comments"".  This means it takes the value from the comments box in the summary tab and uses it as the description.

 

The problem is that in the tree it shows $PRP:"SW-Comments" rather than the evaluated value, which is something different.  Any thoughts?

 

 

The reason we have it set up this way is so we can fill everything out on the summary tab without looking at the custom tab.
