We have started the transition from CE03 to CE06 and have one workstation running CE06.
We typically set our BV clip volumes to CLIP ALL SIDES. They end up looking like this in an iso view, notice both the horizontal and vertical portions of the walls are clipped and resymbolized-- this is the view in CE03.
However the same file opened in CE06 is clipped , but only the primary cut plane is resymbolized. In the following view, notice that the vertical cuts are not resymbolized--inside the red loop
Is there now a setting that must be activated to resymbolize all clipped faces?
Could you please try key-in "tfrebuild" and check again OR try to move the clip plane little bit and check again.
I would be also good to share the file.
Please try setting the variable _USTN_SUPPRESS_CROPPLANESECTIONGRAPHICS to '0'. We deliver this set to '1'
To test you can set this locally, then apply to your system by adding it to Standards.cfg (or your equivalent file).
There appears to be a change in behaviour related to this variable from U3 to U6. We will look into it.
_USTN_SUPPRESS_CROPPLANESECTIONGRAPHICS is designed to eliminate unwanted cut lines in dynamic views, setting the variable to '0' will result in the behavior shown on the left, the effect of the default '1' setting is shown on the right:

Thanks Marc and Aniruddh--
I tried the variable first--I searched for _USTN_SUPPRESS_CROPPLANESECTIONGRAPHICS in the variables, and it doesn't seem to be present, it is mentioned in the comments but where is it?
Looking closely at you screenshot, I think you have a couple of spaces before the variable, I just tried pasting it into the search box, then added one preceding space with no effect, at two preceding spaces the varaible does not show up.
the variable is defined in "C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenBuildings CONNECT Edition\OpenBuildingsDesigner\Config\appl\BuildingDesigner.cfg", but any changes should be made by redefining it at organization or higher level.
Hello Marc-- that would be embarrassing-- but I tried it with no spaces, 1 space and 2 spaces, still no _USTN variable.
I scrolled down to the bottom, and there aren't any _USTN variables shown at all, see image:
I would think that they all should be there under "All" -- something is suppressing them.
