Hi All.

 

I am using custom properties to insert text in my drafts.

I have a couple that are out of place (i.e. wrong order).  Is there a way to re-order the list?

Hi Guys.

 

Please see attached file.

 

If I want to add a property and move it so that it is in the order that I want.

 

I may want to add Rev D information, if I do it will be at the bottom of the list and I want to move it to below rev C information.

AFAIK the order of that list is not customizable... IIRC it is listed in the order created. You MIGHT be able to find and edit the list via the REG but I don't think it's that big of an issue to warrant messing in there REG personally.

MIght suggest a macro that provides a custom UI for properties entry... see screenshot attached

As @Johnson_BigMatt said that's not controllable being a Windows feature. I almost never use that properties dialog except to delete properties. Generally I use Property Manager to edit properties in SE. Columns there are sortable.

@Dazzie, Good. You can also add properties in Prop Man in case you don't notice. Right click a column header, select show properties. Can't delete props though.

Is this the list you are talking about? See attached

 

I call it the annotation list. Some call it callouts because of the name of that menu.

Mine has always sorted alphabetically.

Hi.

 

With the inventor software I think its within the parts list parameters/properties.

 

It is something that maybe isn't available withing Solid Edge.

 

I will just have to have an extensive library of standard parts.
