Document properties

Is there a way to set and link to document properties? Everything in my documents are the same project and I would like to have a project properties at the document level that I fill in one time and  is linked on all drawings in the document. I found the workspace properties "Name" but can't find how to link to it on a drawing? Can more be added?

    Yes, and yes:

    Start here:

    You can edit 1 or multiple parts at a time by shift selecting from the list on the left
    All the properties on the right are OnShape Default. If you want to add more, you will need to create a "Company" and add more properties in that way.
    Whenever you set the owner of the document to the company, than all of the properties defined in the company will also show here.

    Link them to your drawings by creating a note and using the drop down shown here:

    @john_mcclary Thanks, I have been doing that but did not know bout the shift selecting so that does help some.  I was looking for a workspace level property rather than a studio or part level. That way any new studio/part in the same workspace would not have to have the same property added, it would just be linked to the workspace property.
