what is the deal with setting level overrides in a planrd file in default model for instance color 20 for survey and it not carrying through the view model and sheet model?
We've certainly encountered this as well, especially if you make changes AFTER the sheets have been cut in your PLANRD file. The most common reason is that, by default, the Display Overrides reference attachment setting for the Drawing Models (and subsequently Sheet Models) is set to Allow. We've found that changing these to Never has been a reliable solution. This will force the Drawing and Sheet Models to inherit the settings in the Default model, which is acting as your motif.

Yes, it took a while to figure out the trick to it! I was messing with the dgnlib settings forever trying to see what would make it set to "Never" by default. Changing your user configuration variables before clipping sheets to "never" and then changing back to "allow" after was the best fix for getting a working motif for us.
FYI, Bentley added a new option in 10.10
I have been using the Live Nesting, Never solution forever, but this is supposed to be a more reliable solution.

Good to know Zach! I'll give this a try next time we sheet a set. Thank you!
