I have an iparm file that was created using MicroStation J. When I look at the iparm, it has the raster attachments listed. I am opening ProjectWise InterPlot Organizer and adding this v7 iparm to my plot set. If I show the iparm on the General tab in the sheet properties, I can still see the raster attachments listed and it plots/previews good.
I am applying an IPLOT settings file that attaches a different design script only. I noticed that after applying the settings file, the raster attachments are no longer listed in the iparm when I use the Show IPARM option from the sheet properties General tab.
Also when I preview/plot, the raster attachments are now missing. The files are stored in ProjectWise and I am using a managed workspace.
How can I fix this?
The reason the raster attachments no longer show in the iparm is because in later versions of InterPlot, the raster attachments are managed by MicroStation not IPLOT. As long as the raster appears correctly in the design file when opening the dgn in MicroStation, IPLOT will find the rasters during plot time.
Is this particular case, the following line was set in the managed workspace:
_USTN_FIRSTDGNFILE = igen
Once I changed the equal (=) to append (>), the rasters started appearing correclty in the print/preview as expected after applying the new settings file.
This variable specifies a list of MDL applications that are loaded on startup after the user selects an initial design file. The list should be appended not replaced.
