Batch (bulk) edit file properties


Hello all,

Problem : I have hundreds of file that I have to edit the same field in the ''Custom File Properties''.

One way to go is to open each file manually, go into ''File Properties'', go to ''Custom'' tab, click on the field that needs editing, edit it, save, close and repeat.

Is there a way to select all files (all parts) and change, all at once, a field in the custom ''File properties'' ?

Or any other application to batch (bulk) edit .par/.psm files ?

Thank you,

yes,  Property manager .


Does exactly that.


you can edit all props from an assembly structure

or for all files in a folder location.

HI @Vendetti1000




as @MattJohnson_PG already said (YOu were faster) the Proeprty Manager exactly will do this for YOu and will help You.


You can use it from explorer too and You will not need to open a SE file before.


Make it proper for first (that menas, let it show all proeprties You want) and then You can use it.

How do I use property manager on a number of draft files to change title block properties (custom)? I cant see how to start it in Explorer.

With nothing open in SE go to the info tab in the application button, pick property manager, select the files you want to work on.

Or you can get to the same place in Design Manager which has a property manager under the app button.
