it seems if a reference file has defined own presentation (display style), it's ignored in MicroStation CONNECT Edition.
I created simple test case, where a slab is in active model (work3d.dgn) and it's shaded and a sphere is referenced from another file (work3d B.dgn) and the reference is attached with wireframe display style set.
This is how it's displayed in V8i (SELECTseries 3) Update 2...
... and the same files in CONNECT Edition.
Or it's because some default setting has changed in CONNECT Edition?
The used files are attached.
Defect 276740 has been filed to address this issue.

What's the status on this defect? It's been four years now, and I can't see it's been fixed yet (update 13).
Bump. When will this get fixed? this is absurd.
I know this discussion is over 6 years old, but what is the status of this defect?
In MicroStation CE U16.2, the test case is still displayed incorrectly.

This defect is still present, I have update 15, 10.15.00.74.
I found in this discussion information it was classified as WAD.
I disagree with that, because it works in the different way than V8i, and also makes display style hierarchy element > reference > active model > view illogical in my opinion, but the expressed disagreement is probably the only thing I can do :-(
I do not recall any graph, how different settings on different levels are evaluated to decide, what style is used to display what element.
