In OpenRoads Designer (Version 10.09.00), when I am working in a dgn (File1) for some time and make changes, then activate a reference (File2) for example to move a text element, then deactivate File2 and resume editing in File1, any edits that I made in File1 did not save. Is the autosave function not working (it is turned on in my Settings)? A workaround for now is saving just before activating a reference file just in case, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced this issue.
please be aware this is MicroStation forum, not civil one. I recommend to move your question to OpenRoads / OpenSite forum.
To move existing discussion to another forum, use More > Move tool available under your original post.
Also, please follow the best practices and to specify used version exactly. To say "ORD" is not enough, because more versions were released in last few years.

This happens to me as well. I have noticed that if I hit the save before I activate the reference that may changes don't go missing. I do the same before I deactivate. I am not sure if this is just and ORD issue or a microstation core issue. Seems more like a microstation core issue since that is a feature that is shared by all the connect prodects.
This issue has been confirmed as a defect:
Defect 1119365: Elements placed before activate reference command will disappear from dgn
As you noted yourself, the workaround for the time being would be to save before activating the reference.
