I'm very glad to see that you have made Task Navigation (TN) easier to bring up. Having refined my hot-key use for the better part of a decade the thought of having to solely use the ribbon bar for all my commands gave me a nervous twitch. Hence setting MS_TASKNAVIGATION_CONFIGURATION = 1 then following the 3/4 other steps to activate it was the very first thing I looked up and ran when I installed CE. It was terrific. I was able to start playing around with the ribbon bar while still being efficiently by using TN. Happy days.
However, it now appears that you have made Task Navigation its own setting along with drawing, modelling etc. ie I can either have TN, or the ribbon, but not both. Have I overlooked something in its installation? I'm not sure why you changed it in this way but can you please let us use both at the same time? Having both is easily the best option for me because I still have my hot-keys the but the ribbon bar is much better than the V8i drop-down 'File - Edit - etc.' menus.
Not only that, but it doesn't even bring up these menus, so if I want to use anything I have to go back to drawing mode.
I thought Bentley incorporated this change to ease the transition from V8i to Connect.
I use CE as a mix of the best from both worlds just as you described it. If that's not possible with CE13 I'll happily stick with CE10.
CE12 was working fine for me
I do agree with llija.
Bentley, please give us back the option to have both Task Navigation and Ribbons active at the same time. There was nothing wrong with the way it worked up to update 12.
In MicroStation Help Bentley says:
“you can now use the V8i Task Theme in MicroStation CONNECT Edition to quickly access tools as you become accustomed to the new interface. “
In my opinion switching back and forth between Tasks and Ribbons is not the way to get accustomed to the new interface and it certainly is not quick. I think, having them available at the same time is a much better way.
I just didn't get around to switch to CE12 due to really important ongoing projects.
