Text Templates in R22 and R23

Text Templates in R22 and R23
All,
Anyone know what is going on with text templates in the last two releases of CATIA?
I setup my text templates to call out part information on drawings way back in R16. They have always worked from one release to the next without fail. Now in R22 and 23 I can't seem to get the correct information out of my part definition field. I tried rebuilding the text template and related catalog but that didn't work. Attribute links work but that is a tedious way of making all my text notes on large assembly drawings.
I have attached an image of two notes, the upper one is the text template result and the bottom note is the attribute link note with the correct information.

This is the text for the Text Template:
<Product;PartNumber>
<Product;Definition>
<Product;Nomenclature>

Really, no one uses text templates?
Does anyone have a macro to create text attribute links to product properties?

Airbus uses them but I don't work there any more or have access to their systems to help you out.

EMBRAER uses it too! For FT&A, but I can't upload it.

Perhaps a helpful VAR out there that is seeing this thread could take a look at R22/23 and show some love to the user community?  I'm assuming VAR's can see our Forum, anyway.

Mauro,
I tried your text template and at first it seemed to work. Then I went and rebuilt my text templates in R23 updating drafting standards and what not, it also seemed to work. Then a few days later I went back and tried it again and I started to get the bad results again. I haven't had time to spend the appropriate amount of time on this to fully diagnose the issue. I'm not sure when I'll get back to it. I've been so swamped it feels like I'm trying to drink from a fire hose lately; I haven't even had time to spend on the forum.
