Hiding "Error: No refernce" from Property Text Output

Creator

Hello Everyone.  We currently have a block on our drawing with some propety text that pulls information from the part's material properties.  It looks like this: %{Mtrl_Std/CM|R1}, %{Dim_Std/CM|R1}; %{Mtrl_Cond/CM|R1}

 

This works great for part and sheet metal files, but does not work for assembly files.  It shows "Error: No refernce" because those properties do not exist in the assembly file.

Is there way to hide "Error: No refernce" without actually deleting the property text?

 

Thanks for your help.

We use a different template for sheet metal and assemblies, then that isn't a problem.

HI @nominus38

 

 

 

I personally prefer the "Show my error" using a simple "-" symbol to indicate that no property is available at the moment.

So this - for me - looks better than an "Error" but also shows me that it could be, that I have forgotten entering property info so far.

Thanks so much for the quick response.  Unfortunately, prop txt options are greyed out for me.  Any idea why it is not available?

Hi @a2proven

 

 

 

to You use Insight?

 

 

I think I remember a situation where this options is not be available for an insight installation.

This could be changed somewhere in those settings

Hi @a2proven

 

 

 

if this is not the reason, then YOu can try it from the hard core side.

 

Change the registry settings for SOlid Edge - Current USer

 

 

You will find it under Global

Change the "Display Property Text Error String" to 2

0 will be no errors

1 is system error and

2 is user error message

We do not use Insight, we use TeamCenter.  I am looking through the Admin XML file right now to see if there is a setting for this.  I would rather not do a reg edit.  Thanks for the response.
