Mass properties will not display in text box.

I'm having trouble getting mass properties of an assembly to display in an .idw.  I've tried it 2 diffent ways, custom properties-model "Totalmass" where I type the mass and physical properties-model "mass" where it's automatic with update.. Nothing shows, not even N/A, but in another idw (different assembly) it works. Both text boxes are saved within a sketch that is part of a template. Both idw's use the same template. If I place text on the drawing it self it works. Any suggestions would be great before I pull all my hair out.

 

Thanks

the sketch has to be associated with a view to pick up the model data.

if the sketch is simply on the sheet, you will only be able to reference drawing properties
