OK, so half the parametric doors in my drawing just disappears... again. Will I never learn? Never believe what a developer says in the Marketing BS.
I've used every Major rev of MicroStation ever released and have Beta tested starting with V4. This has too be the most unstable product (10X) that I've had the extreme miss fortune of using. Who ever is responsible for releasing this as a usable product should be fired. They either have no pride on no clue about quality. Its truly sad to see a company that once led in performance, stability and features decline to such a level.
Reggie, No, I've run out of time...and obviously patience. How about we start by dealing with the 20 or so open defects I've already filed since product release (not to mention the ones in beta that still aren't fixed). It seems pretty pointless to keep spending all my time logging issues that may or may not get fixed at some unknown point in time. I don't believe anybody could complete a real project with this product. At least not if they are trying to incorporate any new "features" like parmemetrics or items. I've try, given it my all and now I'm screwed because I can't deliver files that are stable and have no idea when or if they will be. I don't want to take this out on support people because they've been dealt the same crappy hand as the customers. This was clearly a management decision to shove this out the door prematurely. Now you guys are on the front line trying to defend a really bad position because somebody in the rear pushed thru a bad plan and I'm telling my client "Sorry your building doesn't really need doors does it? Well maybe you can have them when someone at BSI gets their act together." Maybe they were right and I should have used AutoCAD like they wanted me to.
Jan Slegr said:DGN V8 file format is designed it allows to add new features without breaking backward compatibility, so it seems the files are the same, but properly speaking they are not.
Yes, SS4 will probably introduce all those Element/Display Handlers to allow the 32 bit V8i apps to 'handle' all those new Connect elements and export/print them.
Looking at the new bits planned for ABD SS6U1 and Prostructures SS8, there will also be DWG 2016 schema / Object Enabler and IFC4 compatibility updates, minor Dynamic View section graphics config, as well as a the Connect Client / PW Connect, Windows 10 support.
Not sure if the new .imodel format would be attachable.

What I read and heard in corridors about MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 4) ;-) ... Windows 10 certification, Connection Client / Cloud Services support, Accute3D format supported as a reference, RealDWG 2016.

It would be nice, it's probably more about an amount of work required to add such support than about some seriously complex technical barriers.
I hope we will find out what expectations become reality soon ;-)
