ProjectWise Navigator contains the same workspace structure as MicroStation in terms of configuration files. Please refer to the "Administrative Tasks" section under the ProjectWise Navigator help.
Reference files will also be published as i-models. The published i-model will include embedded reference files when the option to Package the i-model is performed. The resulting i-model will then be self contained on when the file is Packaged.
When publishing an i-model with references, only those references currently loaded into memory are published as i-models. So if a reference file is not found, has its display turned off, or is only attached to another model that is not active, it will not be published.
The .i.dgn is the published i-model that contains the embedded information. The .dgn.i.dgn is the master file of the originating file in the i-model file format
Reference files will also be published as separate i-models if the Package option is not selected. If the Package option is selected, the reference files will then be embedded into the i-model creating a single, self-contained file.
When you have the i-model file open, when you hover your cursor over a reference file in the reference file dialog box, the tool tip will appear saying that the reference is "embedded".
When creating a packaged i-model, by default it will create read-only Everyone access for the i-model. During publishing you have the choice to change that and apply either a password protection or apply a digital certificate to the i-model.
i-models are only supported in MicroStation V8i SELECTseries 1 and higher. Previous versions will be able to open the i-model, but elements may not be visible as this is not supported in previous versions before MicroStation V8i SS1.
Turning a level on or off is done by open the Project Explorer (File>Project Explorer) and then expanding open the appropriate model. Right-clicking on the level will allow you to turn it on or off.
