Is it possible to merge two .dgn files containing fieldbook data without losing the features of point generated linear features (manage point list, insert point in linear feature, break linear feature... etc.) from the merged file?
I changed the configuration variable "CIVIL_SURVEY_RETAIN_SURVEY_ON_COPY=1." and that is working great by allowing me to merge fieldbook data into a master file, but I'm losing the integrity of the data.
Right now we want more than one CAD Technician working on the same project/file and the only way to make the final file compliant is to have all of the data contained in one fieldbook.
By changing the configuration variable (above), we are able to merge files from different areas of the same project into a master file; however, when you merge a file it always loses the point generated features because the linear features are being converted to graphics (also, the points are also not showing a "data file name" in the element information.)
Having some sort of solution or work around for this issue would be huge for production.
See the idea below. Please vote this topic up.
In the meantime use the LandXML feature to transfer chains and points between SS4 survey files. It works well enough to accomplish your work effort.
Hope that helps.
