In MicroStation V8i, we use the task in MainClassic.dgnlib. Because our users want to continue using the same key-in shortcuts in MicroStation CONNECT, we copied this dgnlib to the CONNECT-environment.In MicroStation CONNECT Update 13, we select the workflow Task Navigation and the task Main Classic. But then, in the ribbon group Manipulate, the first five tools are not correct: instead of Copy the tool Copy to Clipboard is displayed instead of Move, Scale,Rotate and Mirror the raster tools Raster Move, Raster Scale, Raster Rotate en Raster Mirror are displayedWe opened MainClassic.dgnlib (CONNECT-version) and tried to correct this via Customize. But when we drag a separate tool (or the complete Manipulate tool box) from the application tools into the task, the application-tool reference is immediately changed into the raster version of the tool.How can this be solved?

This is a bug which has been raised with Bentley before and is due to be resolved by U14, which is due out this month.

Thanks Jon, I know this, but our users want to use the key-in shortcuts of the Main Classic task, not the Drawing task.
CE Update 14 is not due until end of Q1 c. end of March.
I have the Task theme and V8i Shortcuts working, so I am not sure why you don't.
In all versions of CE and more so in CE13 you can copy your V8i task DGNLIB file to the location defined by your MS_GUIDGNLIBLIST variable.
In CE 13 you can then use the top left option (DRAWING) and swap to the Task Navigation and then use the tool to its right to select the V8i Task Theme.
This should give you the true V8i interface and the related shortcuts 32 move, Q1 Smartline etc.
Thanks Ian, this is exactly what we've done. Except that we select the task Main Classic instead of V8i Task Theme, because our users want to use the shortcuts of Main Classic.
But the problem is that in the ribbon as well as in the Tasks dialog the wrong Manipulate-tools are displayed. And this issue stays, even when customizing the task.
