MicroStation SS3. This problem just started in the last couple of days. In the attached file, fit the view and start the Place Smartline tool. Click a location above or below the blue box to indicate the start of the line. The actual starting location is inside the box. This happens with the Place Block and Place Active Point tools, also.Line Test.dgn This a appears specific to certain files.
Your View 1 has a different ACS then the standard
View 1 ACS
View 2 ACS
If you draw in View 2 the line works as expected
Microstation CONNECT 10.17.00.209
ORD CONNECT 2021 R1 10.10.1.3
Microstation v8i SS 10 08.11.09.919
Power InRoads v8i 08.11.09.615
You can open the ACS dialog and reset the ACS origins to 0,0,0 if you do not want to use that ACS in the file.
Hi there, As Mwlong said I tested the file and with right click in the ACS dialog window in View 1 and reseting to Global Origin fixes the problem in my case.
As per the other replies. this is related to View 1 and the ACS. Looking deeper View 1 has an ACS defined but the issue is related to the ACS orientation and not its location.
If you open the ACS dialog you will notice the orientation is not defined. If you change this to TOP, the file works OK. If you do not see Orientation in the dialog, right click on the columns and turn it on.
