I'm using FF= to clip and save out portions of my file to new files, but the attached Item Types are not coming through. Is this a limitation or is there a solution that anyone knows?

You are correct Jon Summers, the exported file DGN file after performing the FF= should contain the Item Types stored in the original DGN file. I have raised a new Defect for this to be rectified.
Defect 1108818: Item Types dropped after performing Copy Fence Contents to New File
RegardsAndrew BellTechnical SupportBentley Systems
We do have the item types stored in a dgnlib. When items are attached, the definitions copy in, as expected, but as you found, they are lost during FF=. Thanks for raising the defect. Also, I found that when copying an element with an item attached using Fence Clip, even within the same file, the new element has no item attached. If you copy the entire element, the item comes with it.
Thanks for that extra detail. I will add that to the defect.
