[CE] Connect Workspaces vs V8i Workspaces - Is there Documentation Available to Explain Equivalency and Additions?

While we are still working in V8i, we are also watching Connect Edition developments as we know we will eventually wind up there.

What I am looking for a some type of explanations and guidance on Connect Edition Workspaces and what is new, what has been migrated. I'm pretty comfortable in my V8i Workspace and modifying them. But Connect seems to be a new beast, with new terminology and I was hoping that there is some guidance available, rather than having to brute force my way into Connect Workspaces.

  • Hi Chuck,

    But Connect seems to be a new beast

    you are right that CONNECT Edition workspace is the new beast and in my opinion it's a right approach. I agree with John the new system allows better organization and related organization concept are well designed. My feeling is that many confusion expressed in MicroStation and Administration forums come from incorrect thinking "CE workspace is just V8i workspace with different naming". It's valid for many features, but not for all, so it can looks like it does not work fine.

    What I am looking for a some type of explanations and guidance on Connect Edition Workspaces

    Contrary to old tmies, now plenty of CE features are quite well described and explained (or at least better than for V8i). In addition to webinar linked by John I recommend also to ready:
