Easier property management and viewing in Vault 2010

One of the troublesome aspects of managing the previous Vault versions was the inability to differentiate between properties that originated from different sources. There is now a predominant (I) after property names for any Inventor files, and this helps out a ton with determining what I am looking at in the properties pane as shown below.



This nomenclature can also be seen in the Property Definitions dialog box when configuring the display and use of properties in the Vault Administration tools.



Now mapping file and system properties is much easier knowing when Inventor is the source property. The same concept also applies to properties extracted from AutoCAD attributes where the property is now appended with an (A).
