The Pen Table I used in Microstation V8 2004 Edition no longer handles the same Multiline geometry when used in MicroStation XM. The weights and colors are not being assigned correctly by the pen table.
Here is what has happened in XM:Complex/Compound ElementsA common hurdle to overcome in pen table design is the resymbolization of complex (cell, shared cell, complex shape, etc.) and compound (dimensions and multiline) elements. Without careful input criteria choices, components of complex and compound elements would be affected twice by the pen table -- once by inheriting output actions applied to the complex header, and again due to direct manipulation of the component element. This could easily lead to unexpected pen tablebehavior.In XM, you now have the ability to choose whether you wish to treat cells, shared cells, dimensions, and multilines as single units or as individual elements. When treated as a single unit, only the complex/compound header is processed by the pen table; all of its children inherit any output actions applied to the header. When treated as individual elements, the complex/compound header is ignored by the pen table. Complex strings and shapes are now always treated as singleunits. No element is processed by the pen table more than once. In V8.5, this functionality was only available for type 2 cells.So if you look at your pen table, on the bottom left hand corner you have a button labeled "Pen Table Option...". Click on it. In the section "Complex/Compound Elements Options", you will see I have checked "Explode Multilines".
