I am trying to use the Background Maps (bing map) in ORD. It is not loading correctly. I have to zoom out extremely large. All I can see is the eastern half of the USA. When I zoom in to my site the aerial image disappears. I have set the correct coordinate zone and logged into Connection Client.
Can you upload your file here: https://bentley.sharefile.com/r-r7fa64a55e074bf3b
And I'll have a look.
Weird thing just happened. I drew a large circle at my site. Zoomed way out to see the Bing map and when I zoomed back in to my site the Bing map displayed normal. I tried zooming in and out prior to drawing the circle and Bing maps would not display in the background. I uploaded the file prior to creating the circle. Good luck.

I tried with your file and it works fine. Do you use a proxy or do you have any IT restrictions?
When I zoom into a Bing Map which has been rastered in, the aerial does not display. Have you also experienced this issue? The aerial is grey when zooming in as shown in the screenshot below.
I notice you are getting the No Camera "watermark" instead of the image. I have seen with certain raster reference files, once you get below a certain resolution, the images stop displaying. This is especially true of XWMS images.
Also, we found that there are plotting settings for raster images that can greatly increase plot times if not optimized to the resolution of the images. We try to match the raster resolutions to the image resolution. For example, we have access to images where the pixels are approximately 6" square. At fifty scale, this is approximately 100 pixels per inch. If we allow the default of raster resolution of 300 dpi, the raster files take about 9 times longer and result in 9 times larger files as it creates new images with 9 pixels for what was one pixel of the original image (3X3). Before we set this process up, we would often get random "no camera" tiles in the output as well.
