I've been using a file in MicroStation v8i for years that our mapper created before he retired. His position wasn't filled after he retired, and I've used his file for a few years to create new very basic drawings from what he had created. My company upgraded to MicroStation Connect recently, and I am having trouble creating drawings within my existing file. Previously, I could upload a tif file and draw shapes on top of it "trace" the uploaded tif sketch in the background. I finally figured out how to upload the tif, but it doesn't stay visible to trace when adding shapes on top of it. I've tried changing the transparency of the shapes, bringing tif to front, but nothing changes. I don't know if there are new commands in the new version, or perhaps the settings saved on my v8i file have disappeared. I was provided a link for learn Bentley, but same problem as others have mentioned. Wheel spins, and no videos load.
Basically you need to follow this workflow:
1. Attach TIF using Raster Manager
2. Drag the raster in raster dialog up or down to change between foreground or background
3. In case of 3D file you will have to set z height of the raster. Also check that view is in Wireframe rendering mode.
4. Draw on top of raster using drawing tools and check that element transparency is off.
