I am starting with MicroStation and I have several doubts.
The active view is the current view which has the focus but what is the active view when a view group has all views disabled?
I understand that an active view determines the active Model. If I change the current view or change the active View Group, active Model is another one.
But what happens if my View Group (especially if it is a Multi-model View Group), has all views disabled?. What will be the active Model?
Moreover, if I have several view groups with the same Model and I change the active Model then MicroStation changes the active View Group? I supose that MicroStation choose the most recent View Group which has that model. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance.
It seems that if all views are disabled, the active view is View1?

There's a lot to learn.
Joan Martinez Serra said:How Active Model works?
A MicroStation DGN file is a container. It contains one or more DGN models. A model may be 2D or 3D. When you open a DGN file with MicroStation, only one model may be active. The active model is available for viewing and editing. You can navigate the models in a DGN file using the Models Dialog.
Joan Martinez Serra said:I understand that an active view determines the active Model
A view is a window into a model, usually the active model. MicroStation may have up to eight views open, each showing some aspect of a model.
With MicroStation, all open views are active, in the sense that you can start drawing geometry in one view and continue drawing in another view.

View Groups provide another mechanism to control model visibility.
