Does anyone know the limit on the number of files that can be added to the print organiser? I have had no problem using it to print 400+ .dgn files to a single pdf however at the moment I am trying to do the same with just shy of 4000 dgns and they wont even add to the definitions list. Im assuming its due to the large quantity.
Any help greatly appreciated
I'm using Microstation V8i (SELECTseries 4).
Makes sense to break up into sections and perhaps combined the PDF afterwards
Try modifying this configuration variable...
MS_PLT_AUTOAREA_RESULT_LIMIT - defines the maximum number of print definitions to be created when searching for multiple shapes or cells. The default limit is 500.
I have tried changing that variable but it has no effect
I have tried this also, didn't work in my case either. Any other suggestions on how to change the limit?
There may not be any way to increase the limit you can search for at one time.
Have you tried creating the plot set by adding smaller groups of files at a time? Select 300 files, add them, go back and select 300 more, add those, and so on?
If there is an upper limit to the number of total files to a plot set, there may be no way to change that. At some point, there is probably a memory "ceiling" that there's just no way to get around.

Thank you so much. It worked :)
I avoid plot to single file because its all done in ram and if it crashes ( which it can do) say on 299 out of 400 then you loose the lot and have to start over.
I plot all single files and in smaller batches say 100-200 at a time and restart from where it failed so I don't loose the lot then combine the pdfs in pdf software like bluebeam review or acrobat there are many type of pdf bundlers...some even free
