Project Explorer & Project Explorer Settings

What controls the project explorer setting.  Every time I close the MicroStation application and restart, my Project Explorer setting are reset to show only Links & File but I need to see and use the Civil Model and Civil Standards tab on a regular basis so I am continually turning them back on.  What causes, this and how can I set them and save the settings?

  • I found what is causing the issue for the civil Browsers in the Project Explore.  The project explore setting for the Civil Browsers are not remembered if you open a Straight MicroStation Application session with out the InRoads application session also activated. 

    This seems like a glitch. I use InRoads often. I do not use it every time I open every Design file.  Typically I will open InRoads once and use straight MicroStation in multiple Sessions.  So a typical work session would be to open one InRoads and possible 2 other Design Files with straight MicroStation.  Sometime even MicroStation only sessions no InRoads. 

    With this, process each time I will need to go into the Project Explore and toggle back on the Civil Model and Civil Standards etc if I need them witch is most of the time if using InRoads, this process of toggling on the browsers also closes the Project Explore dialog meaning the user would need to reopen it also.

    I assume this would not be an issue with Power Civil.
