v8i MicroStation Manager doesn't display title anymore

in V8i I have always been able to create (alt enter) title as  dgn attribute.. very handy and  once built its also visible in win explorer.. recently this has stopped displaying for me in mstn

anyone got any  ideas .. same files work for other users on network..

Here is mstn manager display see  titles not displaying

here is win explorer and see titles visible and were created in mstn

I don't think there is a config variable for this  but why not the same as it used to be a year ago.. just been putting up with it but now I'm sick of it not working..
