    Custom properties configuration problem

    J. R.

      Hi all,


      I'm posting a super-simplified scenario in which I'm having a problem. The Part contains line, which is 5cm in Default configuration, and 10cm in Config2 configuration. There is a custom property "Length" which is tied to that dimension in "Configuration specific" window.


      Now, I'm creating a drawing. I need to make an annotation which displays Length values in each configuration. So, I've inserted this Part with Model View 2 times, for each configuration. Then I attached note to each drawing, and linked it to custom property "Length".


      Logically, each note should show different "Length" values of each configuration.


      However, both notes show the same value - one of the latest configuration I've opened. If I open Default configuration, drawing displays "Length" value of Default configuration. If I open Config2, it shows that of of Config2.


      I just can't seem to find a way to make it show values of both configurations.


      It should be very simple, yet I'm totally at loss. Can anybody please help?


      P.S. Files are in 2013 version. I don't have any later version of SW.
