User want to change print color value based on override color number using a Design Script ( formerly an InterPlot Pen table) in MicroStation.However only default color number was recognized at the design script.
Using a Design Script .PEN file ( formerly an InterPlot Pen table) what selects a color what is defined by Level Overrides, this will work well, only in combination with PW InterPlot Server when variable IPLOTSRV_DESIGN_SCRIPT_SYMBOLOGY_AS_STORED = FALSE has been set. When the variable is set to IPLOTSRV_DESIGN_SCRIPT_SYMBOLOGY_AS_STORED = TRUE, no Selection Overrides is taken.
Using the Design Script in MicroStation printing, variable IPLOTSRV_DESIGN_SCRIPT_SYMBOLOGY_AS_STORED is not used and therefore again no Selection Overrides is taken.
Our recommendation in MicroStation printing use the MicroStation Pen Table In case other Design scripts are use as well, MicroStation can handle MS Pen Tables as well as IPLOT Design Scripts together.
RecapitulationUsing Pen tables or design Scripts when Level Overrides is supported in the following cases
InterPlot + Design Script -> Works fine when variable IPLOTSRV_DESIGN_SCRIPT_SYMBOLOGY_AS_STORED = FALSE has been set in iplotsrv.cfg InterPlot + Pen table -> Works fine when in pen table – Pen Table Option – As Displayed in View MicroStation + Design Script -> Does not work for Level Overrides MicroStation + Pen table -> Works fine when in pen table – Pen Table Option – As Displayed in View
