How can I refresh an embedded line style in file - or even better, force the file to read the RSC file which is where we maintain our standards?
I have run into this a few times. You need to change any element using the line style embedded in the file to use another style. Them use "delete unused linestyles" key-in to remove the embedded style. Now you can apply the line style from the .rsc

Microstation CONNECT 10.16.01.56
Microstation v8i SS 10 08.11.09.919
ORD CONNECT 10.9.0.1
ORD CONNECT 2021 R1 10.10.1.3
This should not be this complicated. Updating a bunch of DGN's when an RSC is updated needs a better process.

Does it use same linestyle names?
Regarding removal of linestyles it would be nice to have delete option in Explorer - https://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/w/microstation__wiki/32053/how-can-i-tell-what-linestyles-are-contained-within-a-dgn
Now the embedded linestyles are like virus.
I agree. It is very cumbersome. The first time I ran across it in CONNECT/ORD it took me a long time to realize what process needed to be used to delete the embedded styles.
Too bad this is only in CONNECT and we have many legacy projects in V8i.
