What exactly does IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION mean in the iplot.cfg ProjectWise InterPlot Client Configure IPLOT configuration file?
IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION determines if InterPlot honors the workspace settings for a ProjectWise document. When set to "true", InterPlot can honor the managed workspace or workspace profile associated with the design file in ProjectWise. This ensures that the correct font, style and other resources are used when producing plots. When set to "false", InterPlot does not honor the ProjectWise workspace settings. The default value is "true".This variable is only honored in Organizer, not in the dialog. It turns off the managed workspace/profile support we added in v8i. When plotting from the IPLOT dialog, we will always use the MicroStation environment you are displaying with in IPLOT.IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_VALIDATION would not make any difference to whether the IP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS gets used because the .ucf typically will override the ip.cfg/iplot.cfg.The variable controls whether or not IPLOT honors the managed workspace or the workspace profile in the context of InterPlot Organizer. The MicroStation workspace could set an InterPlot-related variable, but whether or not such InterPlot variables set in MicroStation workspaces are honored depends on the context. Typically, only IPLOT Dialog variables can be reliably set in ucf/pcf files. Other variables pertain to code that does not run inside ustation.exe.If there is a conflict, the UCF typically would override the iplot.cfg file.This variable would have not affect in the context of the IPLOT dialog but only is useful when plotting from ProjectWise Organizer. The IPLOT Dialog looks for IP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS, and so since the IPLOT Dialog runs inside of MicroStation, it will "see" any definitions of IP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS that occur in the various ucf/pcf files. On the other hands, there are variables that are solely and exlusively used by the IplotOrg.exe container layer, and, for those variables, it would never be useful to put them in a ucf/pcf.In an sense, the InterPlot code NEVER reads UCF/PCF directly, but some of the code calls GetEnvironment variables, and sometimes it is ustation.exe implementing that call, and it will get values from ucf/pcf.IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION does work when using all 8.11.7 s/w, did not test PW XM. Keep in mind that when the validation is turned off, it will use the ucf last used when the print engine was opened.
