Set "Move Boundary with Reference" on/off with key in or preference?

Is there a way to turn off the "Move Boundary with Reference" setting with a key-in or UCF variable?  I need to move a number of references around WITHOUT moving the current reference boundary.  This should be a trivial process, but I'm at a loss on how to force "Move Boundary with Reference" off.

  • Hi,

    in my opinion the best solution depends on how you will move the references and what workflow do you prefer.

    If you will move the references manually, you can use key-in set item toolsettings moverefboundarytoggle=0 to switch off Move Boundary with References switch. To use this key-in, the tool has to be active, so you can e.g. assign full key-in reference move;set item toolsettings moverefboundarytoggle=0 to a function key or to create own tool usign Customization tools available in MicroStation.

    I agree with Andrew there is no standard way how to switch off it by default for all design files, because this setting is stored in the design file, not in user preferences.

    With regards,
