using Bentley Map 08.11.09.882 with SQL Server 2014. The project is "old style" mslink + DB, graphics is in DGN files.
I have a feature with annotations, where annotation text is defined as SQL query with joins composing the annotation based on property values of the same feature.
Sometimes, when existing feature is edited, the annotation is not updated. When edit is repeated, even without any change, the annotation is updated correctly.
Is it known issue or is there any idea what to check?
It's not critical, but a bit annoying ;-)
HI Jan, I don't see anything in our systems that indicates this to be a known issue. Would you be able to upgrade to a more recent version of SQL Server, or migrate the data away from using MSLINKS?
Pick the tool. Adjust the settings. Follow the prompts.

Thanks for the information. This is not critical issue, but mostly annoying issue and when there will be free time (which means probably never ;-) I will have to do some debugging what exactly is happening inside, what is sent to DB etc. But as usually, when a bug cannot be reproduced easily and happens from time to time, it's not simple task.

I do not think it has anything to do with SQL Server version. And I really hate to think about "upgrade to newer version" as standard workaround.

It's long term goal, but there are plenty of reasons why it will not become soon:
I'd like to maintain this project, long-term friendship exists and in fact it's probably the last my customer that use BM / XFM for something like GIS (all other left Bentley in favor of competitive solutions), but it's really tough work. Especially when things like not working INSPIRE (WFS) support, reported years ago (and crucial for any EU company), still don't work, localization is so bad it confuses and misleads users, and for smaller projects (which is also this one) there are plenty of local best practices and guidelines to be handled using open source and/or local software.
