I am having some problem with Microstation connect, my references that are in 3d are going under my raster image in my 2d file, the only solution that I have found is either put the reference over the active design file in update sequence or export the reference to 2d. The reference file are contours, so they can‘t be above the active design file, then the contours lines are above everything. I can’t spend all day exporting my references to 2d, this did not happen in Microstation Powerdraft V8i.
The raster image is in background.
Within the Raster reference dialog. there is an icon to the lft of the raster file link name. It has 3 small squares. This is the tool where you can tell the raster file to be behind or in front of the active file.
have you tried this?
My raster is in background, so I don´t know what is wrong, if I open the same file in Microstation Powerdraft V8i then the reference goes over the raster image and everything is fine, so I don’t know what I am doing wrong in Microstation Connection
Just to understand your workflow.
You have a 2d Design file that you are attaching 3d Contours to, along with attaching a raster image thru raster manager and putting it on the background plane.
Is there anything else you are doing ?
In the update sequence for the references, is the design listed last ?

Any news on how far this defect is from a solution? We discover the same problem in MicroStation CONNECT update 15...

What would the outcome be if you went to your raster container drawing and made it 3d too and then traced on NON printable level boundary around the raster and moved this boundary to -1000 = z then reattach your raster interactive by points to this 3d boundary so it is now at z=-1000?
Then when you attach your raster container drawing it should come in underneath everything even 2d z=0 drgs ... well that is the theory and you only have to copy and edit edit one DGN.... I'm not sure if you can just change the z for your raster in a 3d container file...if it has a jpg it would have a jgw or sister file also called a world file .. you might be able to edit the sister file to make it 3d..I need to do some testing but for now what I have proposed should work.. but note I haven't tested it yet .. let us know how this goes and if there is a simpler way to send the raster to a z=-1000 somebody chime in on this part too.
