I'm brand new to using Openroads Designer, and Bentley products in general, so I feel like I may be missing something simple. Here is my issue;
I have a nested file in which I want to turn the display of in sheet view. We'll call this particular file "TARGET." Hierarchal order is: File A > File B > File C > File D > TARGET, with File A being the current session. Through the "Level Display" I navigate to TARGET, highlight TARGET, right-click, un-check "display." After doing so, I can see that TARGET is no longer showing in the current session. I then Save/Save settings. Upon switching to a different view in the current session and returning to the previous view in which the change was made, TARGET is now turned back on. This same issue occurs when turning off/on specific levels within TARGET, not just the file itself entirely.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
key in : SET REFLEVELOVERRIDES and tell me what it is set to - the message will be displayed at the bottom of the app window (the message center) .

"Reference Level Overrides: ON"
ok it looks like you are not using a saved view.
"MS_LEVEL_AUTO_SYNC_ATTRIBUTE_LIST" - That is a configuration variable - I am guessing you are not familiar with these ?
Correct. I've only about 2 weeks of experience with using Openroads.
go to the search bar in the upper right and key in configuration - in the choices that come up select configuration variables.
This should open the configuration variables dialog. Look thru the list for the variable I mentioned (MS_LEVEL_AUTO_SYNC_ATTRIBUTE_LIST). Is this set or defined ?
Tim, I am having a similar issue but the nesting depth is not as detailed. In my example file A has file B referenced to the default model. I use ORD to create a named boundary and then allow ORD to create the drawing model and sheet model. In the drawing model of file A, I set the Display Overrides on the reference file (which is the default model of file A) to Allow and save settings. When I look at the settings of the reference file there is a saved view or synchronize view setting. In the sheet model of file A, I set the Display Overrides to Never. I then go back to the drawing model and turn off levels, save settings, and go back to the sheet model to see levels turned off. I then close file A and reopen to find that the levels I turned off and back on again in the drawing model and sheet model. I can see that you asked specific questions on these type of settings so I hope you can provide some insight on my issue.
Sean, We did discover that Levels behave differently than Overrides mentioned in the original post above. Using Global Display toggles rather than Level Display to toggle levels on and off in an attached nested file does the trick.
