This is nonsense. Civil software should not interfere with my ability to do my drafting.
We have a project, with several people working on it. Apparently, someone got into my sheet files using InRoads (probably SS4) to do something, and now every one of my sheets is a "managed model". I am working in vanilla MicroStation SS4. I can attach references all I want, but I am not allowed to detach any of them. I get the "You cannot Detach a model from a managed model. The operation is cancelled" message.
I am not in Inroads. I just attached the file a few minutes earlier. but I'm still not allowed to detach it?? Because somewhere along the lines, someone with IR SS4 opened my file?
How can I strip all "design" information out of my sheets so that they can be drafted like any other sheet file without this "managed model" nonsense?How do I UN-manage a model?
I know that I can start IR SS4 and detach the references in question. I shouldn't have to do that.I shouldn't have to waste an InRoads license just to detach a couple of useless references.Especially since the refs in question weren't even attached with InRoads!!
Please fix this so that the draftspeople of the world can get our jobs done.
This problem still hasn't gone away. Pretty much every DGN in this project has somehow become a "managed model".
We've quit using IR-SS4 entirely. But I still need to keep it around for the SOLE PURPOSE of detaching reference files while working on this project. I can attach anything I want, with any software I want, but if I want to DEtach a reference file, I need to stop what I'm doing, exit MicroStation, and open IR-SS4 just to detach the reference.
Is there any way to strip the Civil Design information out of my files so that they react like normal MicroStation files again?
This is wasting time and effort, and I can't imagine there's no way to fix the situation.

If you do a save as to Microstation V7 on the design file with issues managed model issues go away.
