Hello all,

Thank you, Marina

  • Morning Jan,

    Thank you for your reply.

    The version I have on my laptop is: MicroStation CONNECT Edtion Update 10 - Version 10.10.00.23.

    Basically I created some cable tag with all the information i need to create a cable schedule/list, I need to export the tags information into a spreadsheet.

    I used to do that on the Select V8i i had before.

    To be able to do that again would I need to create a new 'report template'?

    Regards,

    Marina

    Nothing has changed with tags in CONNECT.  So, yes, you should create a report template using the same tools as before.

    I don't want to distract you from your task too much, but MicroStation CONNECT has a more general reporting toolReports can be written to harvest information about most DGN objects.  Here are some examples.

    Tags are deprecated feature in CONNECT Edition

    When CONNECT was released, Bentley Systems declared tags to be deprecated.  Subsequently, they () told us on this Forum that tags are not quite as deprecated as initially thought.  However you interpret that change of heart, tags — like many other obsolescent technologies — remain in MicroStation and are unlikely to be removed.  For example, ProjectWise uses tags to annotate title blocks, and many customers would not be amused to find that their title blocks were rendered invalid by 'deprecation'.

    Whatever Samir told, regardless his position and role in Bentley, is not very important, as long as Tags are officially mentioned in "deprecated features list".

    However you interpret that change of heart, tags — like many other obsolescent technologies — remain in MicroStation and are unlikely to be removed.

    I do not quite understand what do you mean by this sentence: For the whole history of MicroStation, "deprecated feature" means "there is newer tool / replacement available" and it's recommended to do not start new projects based on deprecated features. It does not mean the feature will be removed soon or whatever else.

    For example, ProjectWise uses tags to annotate title blocks, and many customers would not be amused to find that their title blocks were rendered invalid by 'deprecation'.

    Again, the deprecation has never ever been (I do not recall any such information) explained as "it will not work". Deprecated features are only moved to a minimal development priority, but are still there, even not available in default GUI (ribbon). And they will there, even not developed further, for many next years.

    With regards,

  • It does not mean the feature will be removed

    I agree: but many people extract exactly that meaning.
