I have a custom manufacturing template for new files which include a handfull of expressions and program group attributes linked to those expressions.
When I create a new manufacturing file, the program groups, expressions and attributes all come through but the attributes are no longer linked to the expressions.
I can copy and paste the attributes and they link fine.
Do I have to redo the links on each new file or is there a way to maintain the attribute-expression linkage?
As you have found, we are getting the value only. This would be an enhancement request to maintain the "Expression Formula" when the template is used.
You can see in the dialog that a new Expression Formula is created for each CAM object attribute. I tried changing those names, but could not find a workaround. If you have a standard set of attributes and expression formulas, you might look at a journal to redefine them all.
