I created bunch of custom 3D line styles in V8i generation software and now they don't work in CONNECT. The way I build these line styles is I used meshes rather than solids (to keep them lighter size-wise) and it seems to be the reason why they are not recognised in CONNECT. Any reason why such defined line styles are not supported? If not, can this be fixed asap so we don't need to recreate
Below is a screenshot. V8i on the left and CONNECT on the right.
I'm running ORD update 4.
I believe the following Defect reported by another user may be related to this issue you're reporting.
Defect 975070: 3D Custom Line Style Containing Mesh Not Displaying If Located in DGNLib or DGN file.
"A custom 3D line style that contains a mesh within the Point Symbol is not displaying properly if it is being stored either in the DGNLib or DGN file. This had previously been working fine when it was stored within the RSC resource file and displays ok in either OpenRoads Designer V8i or MicroStation V8i. It is just when they moved to the CONNECT versions of these products with the line style in a DGNLib that the issue was noticed. This is required so all of the custom line styles are being stored in a DGNLib and are easily transferrable to their clients in DGN format files."

Is there a timeline to correct this problem?

3 years later even in U16 still not fixed but there is a course just how nice is to use 3D linestyles. How ironic is that? https://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/b/microstation_blog/posts/custom-line-styles-3d-line-styles
Mesh linestyles are the only ones which are able to drop using "drop linestyle" and keep the geometry otherwise they export as simple lines which is somewhat expected and unexpected at the same time. If 3D lines are DGN specific then there should be conversion module which explicitly deals with such non-supported(by Bentley and other vendors) element type. This is unacceptable for BIM advanced company.
