I am trying to create a layered PDF in Connect (10.13.00.48). When opening the PDF there do not appear to be any layers. When I create the file in V8i I get the Layer tree with no problems.
I am using the option <PDFLevelLabel>1</PDFLevelLabel>
Attached is my pltcfg file. I have also tried setting in the Plot dialog box Print Levels/Reference to * for Level and File/Reference and On/Off set to On. In the References tab File/Reference set to * and On. I am still not getting my Levels in the PDF (see attached).
When I select my print driver It also sets the Printer/Paper size to PDF-1 which I'm not sure what this is. My print style is PDF-Space Information in dgnlib file attached.
Any help would be appreciated...

I am able to create PDF with layers using MicroStation cE U13 without any problem (but no detail check, just verify some levels are there ;-), so I guess your pltcfg is configured incorrectly.

Why do you use this option? My feeling from this information:

Set PDF > Driver Properties > Enable Optional Content to On and reload the driver.
In xml file it's equivalent
... yes, enable is 0, disable is 1. Do no try understand why it works this way ;-)

What is MicroStation cE U13? Do you have a pltcfg file I can review?
So, what option does the creation of levels. I have dozens of plot drivers and styles I need to bring over from V8i. I can't re-develop all of them. What command line tells Microstation to create the Level list? If you don't know the command line where is it in the interface??
I have <PDFEnableOptionalContent>0</PDFEnableOptionalContent> set and I'm still not getting a layered PDF.
Can you attach a PDF version that will create levels so I can review against mine?

MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 13, official MicroStation name of the current version.
You use "CONNECT" word which is nonsense, such product does not exist. Because MicroStation name has became lenghty, usually it's abbreviated to MStn CE U13, which is short engouh ;-)

This one seems work:
pdf with layers.pltcfg
Thank you Jan. It looks as though these two setting are the ones that did the trick.. Thank you so much! I would like to figure out which ones these are in the interface. I do many edits manually as it's easier to correct multiple drivers that are similar.

Good shot :-)
Because I never changed PDF Standard configuration, I did not think about it in relation to layers in PDF. But it makes sense: When PDF/A-1b standard is used, the layers are not allowed.
