First Off, I am an 18-year AutoCAD user who is working for a company switching to Microstation. I am doing well and am ahead of over 80 others in my office making this transition - but finally assemblying a drawing for printing in Microstation V8i is causing me some frustration.
I have (2) files:
1. Base File (File "A"). This is where all the real field items are drawn in a 3D model.
2. Drawing File (File "B") This is where the File A is referenced into, annotations are added and a sheet view with the Annotation Model referenced in is created for printing.
I have referenced File A into (2) different 3D Design Models (File B contains (2) Design Models) - "i" is Model 1, which is a plan view. "ii" is Model 2, which is used for creating sectional views) separately with (2) different Logical Names into File B.
Saved Views from Model "i" and Model "ii" are referenced into Sheet View of File B. Each saved view has a different display set of Levels.
The problem I am having is even though Levels are correctly displayed in the Design Models' Saved Views, they are not displaying correctly in the referenced views on the Sheet Model.
Just as a note for anyone who may ask - I work for a company that because of the work and Federal Law, I can not upload any views or working files for reference. But, I have attached a sheet showing the concept I am working with that is causing Level Display issues
Hopefully you can follow my outline here. I appreciate any help you may be able to offer.
ok can you make a junk file with a 3d box and do the same work flow with a couple fake levels and do what is giving you problems then upload that .. its not real data its dummy data not working files but we can see the work flow and what is happening to you may not happen here so it could just be settings or variables,,
Currently Using V8iss10 (8.11.09.919)

What are your Reference settings for "Synchronized Views"

I figured it out. I had some nested references, but my Depth was set to only 1. So, I was not seeing the Levels from the Nested References.
Thanks for the responses.
