ORD Connect 2020 Release 2 Update 8 - Version 10.08.01.33
I have been following the Bentley Learn link for "Under the Hood - Setting up Sheets - Part 1 and 2" to set-up our sheets for the first time.
Iv'e created my Drawing Seed, Sheet Seed, Border Drawing, my config variables point to the correct seed files, and I'm using my dgnlib file to create my Named Boundaries.
When I get to the Create Drawing dialog, the OK button is grayed out and the Drawing Model>Seed Model: in listed is red, hovering over it doesn't give me any info on the error. See attached.
What is the error about? The seeds are listed properly in my config file.
As per the screenshot , Please select the seed file and make sure that the seed file is located in the workset folder, That means please make sure that you are in active workset to deliver the sheet from created Drawing seed .

I am creating my drawing seed, not using it. There is no option to pick the Drawing Seed Model - it's populated by my config file, right? The Sheet seed model seems fine (populated using the same config file). I realize that this is probably a workspace/workset or a naming/lingo issue, but I don't even know where to start looking. I am coming from SS4 and Geopak, and never set anything up previously. I guess I need some person to person guidance, because I've watched so many videos about the same thing and still can't get it.
I believe the drawing seed come from a dgnlib. I've had to step away from ORD for a little while, so the answer might be this and CFG variables, too.

No, the model seeds, drawing seeds, and sheet seeds are all *.dgn files.
The default location is C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CE\Configuration\Organization-Civil\_Civil Default Standards - Imperial\Seed\.. Yes, the config variables set the location of the seed files (as needed and as specified).
I'm just trying to figure out why the filename is red. I can't select a different seed. Here are the lines from my config file:
MS_DRAWINGMODELSEED = $(CIVIL_ORGANIZATION_STANDARDS)Seed/Sheets/Seed2D-Alpena Drawing.dgnMS_DRAWINGMODELSEEDNAME = Seed2D-Alpena DrawingMS_SHEETMODELSEED = $(CIVIL_ORGANIZATION_STANDARDS)Seed/Sheets/Seed2D-Alpena Sheet.dgnMS_SHEETMODELSEEDNAME = Seed2D-Alpena Sheet
The Sheet Model Seed is fine, the Drawing Model Seed is not. But what's the problem??
Primarily, the configuration variabes are seen at C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CE\Configuration\Organization-Civil/_Civil Default Standards - Imperial.cfg. More specific civil variables are found in the workspace config file (C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CE\Configuration\WorkSpaceSetup.cfg
Yes, but I've modified my Civil Organization Root in my WorkSpace.cfg file to point to a server, I have 3 other CAD users. So it all points to my modified standard workspace. This is probably the root of my issues. But all was working great, until this roadblock.
