We are using a Sheet Index to label Sheet models in DGN files, however, we are finding that after editing the Sheet Index, changing labels, etc (and running the Sheet update Sheet command) that only models that are physically opened after the change have title block Sheet property fields updated.
We have resorted to a macro that manually opens up each Sheet Model and runs the "FIELD UPDATE ALL MODEL" keyin before plotting in Print Organizer.
We have the MS_AUTO_UPDATE_FIELDS = ALWAYS and MS_PLT_UPDATE_FIELDS = 2 variables set - is there something else we need to do to get this to work properly?
MS_PLT_UPDATE_FIELDS is not a recognized configuration variable in CONNECT Edition.
Fields in the master file are updated when Print Organizer opens the file in its background process, but only if the file is opened in read-write mode. By default, Print Organizer opens files in read-only mode for safety and to prevent file locking. There is a setting to change that. Also, the file cannot be opened in read-write mode anywhere else (i.e. in the interactive process) or Print Organizer's background process will be denied write access and fields will not update.

is anyone else seeing that this no longer works in Microstation Update 16.2?

I personally was never able to get this trick to work. I have been using the “right click on a sheet index folder in Microstation and selecting update all fields” trick and that has been working great, even for files stored in PW.
