Properties in Drawing Format Not Updating

I made a drawing format, and included drawing properties such as Last Changed By and Last Changed Date.  Even though I change the drawing and update it,  those properties to do not change. I have some configuration specific properties like Revision that do change.  Any ideas?

    I did some test, but I had to wait a day for the date to change (Sorry)
    What I found is the "Drawing Last Change Date" Field only update on a modification on any of the part that you insert and not the drawing itself.
    So let say you add a note, or move part in the drawing sheet, the date will not update.
    But if you make a modification on any part that are inserted in the drawing sheet then yes the date will update.
    That's what i found after some trial.
    Hope this helps.
