  • Forum Thread: Why does everyone now need to use the same function keys?

    It used to be the case that when you set up your own personal function keys, those set of functions were retained on your computer system for your own personal use and were exclusive to you user configuration. Now however it seem that function keys are no longer exclusive and are loaded relative to the...

  • Forum Reply: Re: Bentley BIM - USACE - network

    One thing that came up recently had to do with reference files and the "use lights" setting turned on. In this case there was a large amount of reference files (over 100 for structural bar joists) attached and it was causing the system to crash. The fix was to turn off the "use lights"...

  • Forum Thread: Preparing the model for Navisworks building sequencing.

    Okay folks Our client requires our model for use in Navisworks, where they intend to sequence the build.

  • Forum Reply: Re: Problems running the latest Mechanical V8XM and V8i with Microsoft 7 PRO

    Steve Cocchi Mark, do you anything similar to this? We recently overhauled and set up a new V8i workspace on the server and it is almost completely read only with the exception of a few files/folders such as the metadata folder within the BBES dataset directory and dwgdata for translations....

    That is the question. I'm using Bentley Architecture V8i select series 2. I create a dynamic view (extraction from the 3D model) the line weights and hatches look okay, I live nest reference to a sheet but then when I print to PDF it automatically rasterises the drawing and I end up with very...

    Joaquin: There is a DGNLIB that stores the default settings for a Building View. The location/name of this is controlled by the configuration variable MS_VIEWSEEDFILE. By default the seed views in ustation.dgnlib are used. Depending on which View Type you are applying it will use the settings from...

    I reviewed the new USACE workspace (there is a new one for V8i: 09Q4a_v8i) and the MSDIR is defined like this: MSDIR : ${_ROOTDIR} This allows for the configuration to use _ROOTDIR which is defined on each machine. Another thing you might want to edit is the shortcuts themselves. The USACE workspace...
