When a drawing annotation has a link to a Custom Property based on the ‘View specified in the sheet properties’, it references the Custom Property from a view on that sheet.
The Sheet Properties by default is set to use the properties from the model in the drawing view which was first added to the sheet (Default). Though you can choose a specific view on that sheet.
In the event that you have a multi-sheet drawing with each sheet referencing different models, again the first view on each sheet is referenced as the source for the properties (by default). In this example, Sheet1 has a view of the assembly “BEVEL ADJUSTER” and the text is linked to the Filename model in the default view on this sheet.
On Sheet2, we only have views of the part “bevel adj knob”. Therefore the text pulls the Filename from the first drawing view, being of the “bevel adj knob”.
However if you are finding that the linked properties on additional sheets are still referencing the views from the first sheet, it may be due to an option you have enabled. This option forces linked annotations on all sheets (set to ‘Drawing view specified in sheet properties’) to reference the property of a specific sheet in the Document Properities. In some instances this could be useful where a drawing Titleblock should have the same information through each sheet, but some sheets may have views of different models.
However you still have the ability to override the setting on each individual sheet if need certain ones to reference the model in that particular sheet. Uncheck ‘Same as sheet specified in Document Properties’ and then you can select a specific view on this sheet (or leave it as Default).
