When I open the Display Styles dialog I do not see all my Display Styles and those delivered with MicroStation
In MicroStation CONNECT Edition the available Display Styles listed in the Display Styles dialog are populated from configured DGNLIB libraries files and those created within the opened DGN file.
1. Check that the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST variable includes the DGNLIB file(s) containing the required Display Styles.
Note: In a MicroStation as delivered Configuration the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST points to the as delivered file DrawingSeed.dgnlib (C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\Default\Dgnlib\DrawComp\en\DrawingSeed.dgnlib) containing the Display Styles.
To do this open the Configuration Variables dialog ( File > Settings > Configuration > Configuration Variables ) search and select the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST and check the paths in the Expansion box.
2. Check to see if the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST_DISPLAYSTYLES has been defined.
Note: If the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST_DISPLAYSTYLES is defined only these DGNLIB file(s) Display Styles will be processed and made available in MicroStation. Other DGNLIB files Display Styles processed by MS_DGNLIBLIST will be ignored. Thus ensure all DGNLIB files required are added to this variable.
To check the var open the Configuration Variables dialog ( File > Settings > Configuration > Configuration Variables ) search and select the variable MS_DGNLIBLIST_DISPLAYSTYLES and see if the Expansion box lists any DGNLIB files.
3. Check the configured DGNLIB files contain the required Display Styles, it may be the Display Style(s) have been deleted.
To do this open the DGNLIB file as if it was DGN file and open the Display Styles dialog, the Display Styles listed bold are contained within this file.
Tip: Move your cursor over the Display Style name in the Display Styles dialog to see where it is located.
4. Check for the configuration variable MS_DISPLAYSTYLES_LIBLIST
Note: This variable was used in MicroStation V8i to define the DGNLIB files to be processed for Display Styles.
