Sheet Navigator - SheetInfo.xml

MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 4)

FDOT Sheet Navigator Version: 03.30.30



I would like to manually modify the SheetDescriptions element in the SheetInfo.xml document and have these modifications applied to the sheets when the "Finish and Apply Renumbering" is run. I cannot get this to work.

Here are the basic steps I am following:

  1. Open MicroStation / Sheet Navigator
  2. Build a new Project index (SheetInfo.xml)
  3. Exit
  4. Manually modify the SheetInfo.xml document in notepad changing some sheet descriptions
  5. Open MicroStation / Sheet Navigator
  6. Open “Project Sheet Index” (I can see the changes I made to the sheet descriptions at this point)
  7. “Start Process” from the Renumbering / Multi-Edit menu
  8. “Finish & Apply Changes” from the Renumbering / Multi-Edit menu

After this process it does not modify the sheet descriptions that were entered into the xml document as I expected, it is still pulling them from the dgn text.


The ultimate goal here is to create a “helper tool” that modifies this xml document helping with the sheet descriptions.


Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
