Delete, or not...

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. Man Wink

Not likely with a numeric property type.

Strange because:

At start this is empty without a problem and second: It is a "text" property.

ithink you will need to replace the exsting value with a "space"

 

i do not think you can delete but have to have some other value in there...
