Family of parts members with different Subject field



I would like to know if there is a way to make family part members with different Subject names. So far I found that if I write sth in Subject field (in  file properties) of Parent file I will get the same information in generated family member files which is not useful. 

I use Subject field in part lists so if I put two family members into assemly and than make a 2d draw with part list I will get two positions with the same name. 

So maybe anyone know if I can use some other field or add some variable or sth to put information like Subject name (different than part name/file name) into each FPM file from Parent file? 

It would be really helpful to be able to do it. eg. if I could use 'description' field in family part member table which unfortunately istn visible if its even present in FPM files at all.

So guys, any suggestions?

Re: Family of parts members with different Subject field

OK ...


I found solution which was really easy but I didn't think about it at all.

After Populating Members and saving file in Property Manager there is an option to change the Subject field in each family part member separately.
