I would like to create a parts list (BOM) for the fasteners used in a contraption, but the custom properties assigned to a block are lost when I insert the block.
1. Tools/database/define fields: define description and partnumber
2. Create block
3. Select block in palette
5. Select block in main window
7. Attach description and partnumber; enter appropriate values
8. Click OK
9. Click Finish Edit Content icon
10. Drag block from palette to main window
11. Modify/properties/custom: no custom properties!
As an experiment I exploded the block and the custom properties appear!
If I assign custom properties after I insert a block, they stick to copies of the block.
Am I doing something wrong or is the custom properties feature broken?
Thank you for any help.
(I accomplished my immediate task by using the insert block attribute feature)
