Hi Chaim,

Greetings to you!

I have used a process builder for this scenario and it is working fine. 
You can use the Process Builder to update child record fields whenever the parent record is created/modified.

Note: I have used Account and Contact object, you can use Steady_Maintenance_Commercial__c  instead of Account and Steady_Maintenance_Proposal__c instead of Contact.

1. Create New Process.

2. Select a parent object.

3. Add Criteria according to your requirement.

4. In 'Immediate Action', select Update Records. 
Click the 'Object' Picklist, then select the Account record that started your process and select a record related to the Account:
Note: These records are radio buttons, and only one may be selected. To update child records, select the send option 'Select a record related to the Account'

5. In 'Find a field', look for the child Object name you want to update:
Note: If the child Object is a Custom Object, the name would end with '__r'

In 'Type'. select Field reference
In 'Value', select the parent's field that you want to update in child records.

6. Save and don't forget to Activate it.

I have tested in my org and it is working fine (using rich text area field).

I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future. It will help to keep this community clean.

Thanks and Regards,
