Editing Custom Properties

To edit custom properties:

  1. If the check box at the top of the Linked column is selected, clear the box.

    The Linked column links custom properties to the base or parent part.

  2. In the table, click the Property Name, Type, or Value / Text Expression property that you want to change.
  3. Edit the properties.
    When you define a custom property that includes a single or double quotation mark (‘ or “), enter an @ sign in front of the quotation mark to ensure that the expression evaluates correctly. For example: 2@" X 2@" X 1/4@".
  4. Press Enter.
    This editing modifies the custom properties for the current document only. Edit the global custom properties with the Edit Custom Property List dialog box.
