Yes, been here before. Branding (or assignment to workset) caused the DGN file to change it's modified date even if nothing was done other than opening. I use the modified date, it's good information for me. When this happened the first time, back in CExx, I set-up a batch to open every file in my active projects (100s) so I could track them going forward.
So now it's doing it again (has been for a while). In addition to the ridiculous amount of bugs and defects, this is just annoying.
Why Bentley, why?????????
Hi Bob,Thanks for your post. I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations.When you refer to the "modified date", I'm assuming you are referring to something like the Windows File Explorer "Date Modified" column? -Jayson
Ok, thanks for the clarification.Seems that changing the WorkSpace/WorkSet branding for a particular file would technically modify the file and hence, change the Date modified file property. I'll check with our dev team to be sure.Here are some ideas/solutions that may be worth looking into:- Look into the MS_CONFIGURATIONOPTS config variable to disallow selecting different WorkSpaces/WorkSetshttps://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/w/microstation__wiki/68319/overview-of-the-ms_5f00_configurationopts-configuration-variable- Disable any active settings for auto save and auto save settingshttps://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/w/microstation__wiki/16932/auto-save-and-auto-save-settings- Set files that you do not want modified to Read-only (right click > Properties > toggle on Read-only attribute > select Apply then OK).
