When reference is changed - is it possible to display what has changed before reference update?

Hello,

During collaboration involving many many models with many many changes a designer should be able to spot changes in reference files with aid of the software. Is something like this possible in Microstation?

Imagine there is 30km model of road and one column changed its location. It is impossible for a designer to spot the change when the reference is updated after it had been changed. There must be a dedicated tool for this.

I have seen latest versions of Autocad has this feature called dwg compare which probably does what i am talking about but i have not seen how it works with 3D. 

Thanks

  • An option to consider which I use for comparison is to save a copy of the file in its original state, then reference it into the file where you are making the changes and use Level Overrides with 2 colours to visually differentiate changes between files. Dark grey is usually good for the original and something bright and contrasting for the updated file works well. Also set the original file to the bottom of the update sequence as well so that any changes stand out easier.
