How are default WorkSet Properties modified

When a workset is created, there is an option to create new WorkSet Properties.  These can be added and edited later from the workset menu.

There are also default Workset Properties such as Project Name, Project Number, etc.  Where can these properties be modified?  The workset menu only shows the properties I created.  Under the File Properties within a DGN there is a section called WorkSet Properties where I can see both the default and user added properties (all properly greyed out since they shouldn't be edited within the file).  But I can only edit the ones I added.  How do I edit the default Workset Properties?

I'm investigating using the workset properties to populate sheet number block items such as the "Project Number" that will go on all sheets.  Once the Workset Properties are set and all the pertinent properties can be edited; is it possible to save that as a workset template (to be used on all projects)?

(I've also tested using properties within the Sheet Index properties, and have the same question about having a DGNWS template.)

  • I realize this is a very old article but I just want to say how absolutely insane it is that you can easily get a window that has the folder paths listed but have to go into obscure configuration files to actually change the paths. I've been working on this for over a half hour. What could possibly be the excuse for such shoddy implementation?

    Not to mention that we are several versions later, and I don't even know if the advice on this question works anymore, because things get changed around for absolutely no reason between each version, but your web results are constantly clogged up with responses to years-old questions that don't apply anymore.

    All I want to do is change my WorkSet dgn folder from the root folder to the /dgn/ folder. The fact that anybody would ever even need to look into support questions for this, let alone fail to resolve the problem quickly after doing so, blows my mind. It's all very frustrating. It's indifference to the user experience so extreme it borders on hostility.

    I've given up. On changing the default file path that my WorkSet saves files to. I had to give up on that, because it was too difficult. If any Bentley employees read this post then think on that for a minute.

  • Hi David,

    Thank you for your comments and I understand your frustration. I have forwarded this and another of your posts to the product manager responsible for configuration.
