HDI auto fill in multiple text boxes via Group Custom Properties

I would like to utilize the Pop up feature of the Custom Properties to prompt a user to fill in several items that would in turn dynamically fill in several text boxes within the Master shape when it is inserted.

I can use a Field tied to the underlying shape within a group to automatically fill that text box from it's own Custom Properties box.  But I need help on using some sort of relative addressing from the Group Custom Properties to point to the indivual text boxes in the underlying shapes.

I read about IDs but that seems to work on static elements. I would like this to work from a master shape within the shapes in the group.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
