When starting a new project from an existing project I open the main assembly and make changes to the properties with the properties manager.
Changes are OK, but when you delete, it's not kept...
I can delete, but after closing an reopen, the old (wrong) quantity is there again.
I want the quantity (custom property) deleted, I will fill this in later.
Is this behaviour as wanted??
I never use a custom property for quantity but I did create one in a part used in an assy. When I use prop mgr on that assy changing the number did stick as you would expect. Don't know what's happening with you.
A change to an other number is indeed no problem.
Deleting to "empty" however doesn't stick.
Maybe because it's a numeric property. Will zero "0" work? Or a dash. Or period. Or ?
Edit: It should work if it's a text property. Is text acceptable?
Everything is acceptable because I will change the value during the calculation of the project, but I want to chang it only for the 'this project only'-files. All the rest (company standard parts, hardware,...) needs to stay empty.
So 1 hit on the delete key is fast and what I want, but SE doesn't work with me...
I think a numeric property needs a value of some kind, even "0".
You can make the value 0 or change the property type to text.
You can copy and paste many fields at once if that helps.
I will use this workaround, but still hoping I wil once be able to silmpy hit the Delete button.
At start this is empty without a problem and second: It is a "text" property.
