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.
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.
OK. What does it look like in V8i. Do you have the dgnlib that goes with it. feel free to email me if you want to discuss this offline..
In V8i, the correct Manipulate tools are displayed in teh MainClassic task.
Can you try this version....
Did you try the new version i posted to here.....
Yes, thanks, I tried your DGNLIB today and it works fine! When exploring your version, I found that you in fact created a new ribbon tab and filled it with the original ribbon groups and tools, am I right? That's a great way to work around this issue. It also answered another question I had: how can I remove the ribbon group Main? Because it seems that group can't be removed from a ribbon tab that originates from a V8i task. But by creating a new ribbon tab this problem was also solved.So I'm very happy with your help. Thank you very much!
