Microstation Connect not creating layered PDF

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...

  • Hi Mark,

    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.

    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.

    I am using the option 
    <PDFLevelLabel>1</PDFLevelLabel>

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

    • You are trying to edit pltcfg directly, which is very bad idea in general.
    • This option does not control whether layers are created or not.
    Any help would be appreciated...

    Set PDF > Driver Properties > Enable Optional Content to On and reload the driver.

    In xml file it's equivalent

    <PDFEnableOptionalContent>0</PDFEnableOptionalContent>

    ... yes, enable is 0, disable is 1. Do no try understand why it works this way ;-)

    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.
