Is there a way to sort the View Group list by model type?
Under Manage View Groups I can get close, but not quite.
Possibly the option to move the view group(s) up or down, to the beginning or end of the list after they have been created like iPlot Organizer.
Plus the 'Save Layout' function may not be operating correctly. It does not re-sort or change with the column headings.
Would like to save the view groups in this order (top to bottom);
Finding the Multi-Model Views should not be a problem for a dozen or so models. It could be time consuming if there are over a hundred drawing and sheet models because the order it appears seems random. I guess one can always create a function key or civil view controls (view set) to accomplish this task.
That would be nice. If the objective is to not only sort the view groups, but to also navigate to a specific one and without having to scroll through the dialog and list boxes, then a simple VBA can probably work for this purpose. Say write a basic subroutine such as this.
Dim vg As ViewGroup
Dim vgs As ViewGroups
Set vgs = ActiveDesignFile.ViewGroups
'cycle through the vgs collection and activate the multi-model views if it exists.
For Each vg In vgs
If vg.Name = "Multi-Model Views" Then
'makes more sense than exit sub for those who believe in all things must have a proper beginning and ending.
Then link it up though the workspace configuration and DGNLIB. Right mouse click and select the view group you want to navigate to.
You probably can do the same setup for the Default and Default-3D view groups. This simple Microstation VBA subroutine can probably be added to the ViewSet/ViewControl VBA included in Chuck's delivered civil workspace for SS3/SS4.
