the HELP SAID: "Items can be attached to a model within a cell library; every time that model is placed as a cell, the attached items are copied to the new cell."
but, i attached a item type to a cell, but when I insert the cell in to another DGN, there is not the item type.
I tried it and it seems it works.
Can you provide information what MicroStation version do you use (I tested it in Update 6)?
Did you attach the items to model or to an element in the cell?

I am using CE 10.00.00.25.
My CELL did not create through cell library, just followed
in the target DGN, I place the cell.
Now, I change the cell's shape, choose "Replace Cells--update global", the target DGN change. but I attached a item, the target DGN doesnot change.
Unknown said:BUT using"replace" or "update" , the item does not change
your original question was about cell placement (which works as described in documentation), not about replacement. This is another tool, so the discussion is confusing a bit now.
I tried to replace the cell and it seems you are correct, the replacement tool does not support Item Types. I am not sure whether is should be reported as bug or as enhancement wish, but I think a right way is to post this issue in Ideas section. The replacement tool allows to configure User Attributes and Tags replacement mode, so it should be extended to Item Types also.
thanks. I think if the problem is solved, the ITEM TYPE can be very help for BIM
Not solved yet.
Microstation CE U13 removes the previously entered data. This is for the situation where the ITEM TYPE is included in the CELL definition.

Hi! Are there any changes? I am trying to replace my cell (an Item is attached to the initial model in library), and it does not work
