Background The visible edges configuration variables allow the user to control the visible edge calculation settings. These variables either provide default settings or override the existing setting values.
The workflow outlined below should be followed in order to create a custom default setting for Export Visible Edges.
The Export Visible Edges dialog is present in this location ( File > Export > Common File Types > Visible Edges (*.hln) )
The configuration variable “MS_VISEDGE_DEFAULTS” controls the default settings. The default settings are otherwise extracted from the design file. You can still change these values through the user interface, as desired. The default settings are applied when you open a design file and do a save setting (File > Save Settings).
This variable is stored in the BuildingDesigner.cfg under this location (C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenBuildings CONNECT Edition\OpenBuildingsDesigner\Config\appl)
The visible edge overrides keywords need to be defined along with the values mentioned in the below snap and each keyword should be separated by a comma (,).
