My company has a customized setup. All of the DGNWS files reside in one directory called ”_DGNWS” (without the quotes). The WorkSets are in a separate directory and not a sub of the WorkSpace directory. The design model and sheet dgn files are located on a separate project server.
I was making a typical WorkSet gobye template for each of my WorkSpaces, so when I pick Create WorkSet, I could choose the gobye from the Template pulldown.
I had made a WorkSet called “_Ameren_NCS-GoBye” (without the quotes).
Then when I made a new Workset called “_NCS-GoBye”, it initially looked OK in the pulldown listing.
I exited MicroStation CE. When I re-opened CE, the Workset pulldown displayed the name “_Ameren_NCS-GoBye” twice. When I looked in Windows Explorer at the WorkSet directory, everything appeared to be named correctly, including the dgnws files.
This seems to only happen when I use the “_” underscore and “-“ minus characters in the WorkSet name. Plus this only happens when part of the new WorkSet name has been utilized in a previous name.
I can successfully make simple WorkSet names like 19L0001.
Other examples of the name not working are:
_CSX_Struct-Gobye I tried to make _Struct-Gobye it duplicated _CSX_Struct-Gobye
_ILTOLLWAY_ORD-Gobye I tried to make _ORD-Gobye it duplicated _ILTOLLWAY_ORD-Gobye
_MtDOT_Road-Gobye I tried to make _Road-Gobye it duplicated _MtDOT_Road-Gobye
I have attached screenshots of the WorkSet pulldown showing the duplicate name, and a picture of the Windows Explorer WorkSet directory that show the cfg files NOT having duplicate names, plus the corresponding directories that were created.
Is this a glitch in the DGNWS file??
Thanks in advance,
Which version (exact version number) are you using? Also, are you using WorkSet Templates to create both WorkSets?
Using MicroStation Connect Edition Update 12 - Version 10.12.00.40
I am using the default Workset template to create the WorkSets and the initial dgnws file.
I guess when you say WorkSet Template I should clarify:
I have a modified workset.template that is utilized. But I use the default dgnws file and let MicroStation create the subdirectories.
The workset.template is my seedfile that MicroStation chooses when it creates the workset.cfg file. I do not manually copy the file, I let MicroStation create it.
