I´m very proud to have managed to:
- create a cell in a dgnlib that reads Item types (area, number of rooms, bathrooms, etc) attached to shapes.
- I´m placing this cell as a label and I´m able to read out these item types in my working files.
so far so good. (it looks like this)
I need help with:-Re associating the label to a shape when association is broken. like I do with any dimension.
- If I decide I want to now show the perimeter of the room. I would change the cell and update the label. In this case the association is also broken. Is there anyway to keep the association or in the worst case scenario re-link it when it breaks?
Thank you very much!
Thanks for your fast answer.
But we use labels without a leader....So I am afraid this will not help us.
please try to use the tool "Reassign Field" to re-associate the label to the shape.
To update/reassign fields we have to assign Reassign Field to all individual fields. I want to notify you that there is an opened Enhancement 664344 that requests to update multiple fields.
It would indeed be usefull to update a label as a whole - and not the individual fields.
Apart from that it is not good that you can change individual pieces of text within a label. When people change fields to normal text the links are also broken .... and then you don't know if the information within the label is correct.

why are they doing that, when I try to edit these they are clearly showing a background highlight in the text editor thus indicating they are text fields... maybe these "people" you mention need more cad education and more microstation training not to turn Text fields into text .. they are not the bad old Edit Data Fields but text fields linked to an element's properties..
Maybe use a level name name like "TEXT_FIELD_DON'T_CONVERT_ME_TO_TEXT"
might help ( not exactly company level name standards but needs must)...
