What does a Print Organizer "˜Update from Design File" actually update in the Print Definition (pset)?
Print Organizer print definitions (pset) are designed to efficiently store print parameters and information required to support print parameters. They are not intended to act as DGN file snapshots. A print definition (pset) is not a superset of the DGN file, and does not contain any information about graphical elements or reference attachments. However, a print definition does contain detailed information about the master models and views defined within a DGN file. This information, referred to as "design state", provides context for print layout parameters stored in the print definition.Information stored in the design state includes:- List of master models- List of view groups- List of saved views- Active view group- Information about each numbered and saved view, including:- View origin and size- View flags, including level symbology, area fill, custom line styles on/off, etc- Maximum render mode, used in determining whether rasterized mode is enforced- Per-view level on/off flags- Information about the master model pointed to by the view, including:- 2D/3D flag- Design/Drawing/Sheet model type- Model name- Global origin- Working units- Sheet definition parametersIf the model and/or view properties are changed in the DGN, and you wish for those changes to be reflected inside the print definition, then you must use the print definition's 'update from design' feature.
