This seems to have been asked many times, but no solution found.
Can we add our own values to the drop down menus in the Custom Property tab?
We don't want to use a Macro
Or custom property tab builder
Yes you can do that with "property Tab Builder" in Solidworks
Start > All Programs > solidworks 2015 > Solidworks Tools > Property Tab Builder 2015
Using SolidWorks - Property Tab Builder - YouTube

I don't think it is possible
Adding to that list is not possible. Why not use the property tab builder? It's still got some areas for improvement but way more useful if you want to have text look-ups.
Another solution is a PDM system that goes in and sets the variable on check-in or check-out because then you can't lie about who did it.
We use the property tab builder. I have one for each file type, part, assy, and dwg.
The dwg uses a text file for the names dropdown.
