Whenever Microstation V8i crashes it sometimes changes all levels in the file to an abstract level that is automatically renamed. It also changes all the elements to white (color 0). All of the levels the elements were previously on are now gone, and the levels don't show up in the level display. As a reference, the level display shows NO levels instead of unused levels and says "No Levels Passed the Filter". Level Overrides are OFF so this is not the solution.
It looks like it corrupted the level display when it crashed. Is there something I'm missing? Can anyone help/ also experienced this issue?
