Clash Detection Dialog
Allows you to identify sets of elements to be used for the detection of physical clashes and clearance problems between the elements. Also used to review, track, manage, group and save clashes. All jobs that you create are stored in the active file along with the results of the clash detection operation. You can also store the job in a DGNLib.

|All Jobs List Box|| Lists the jobs created for clash detection. Once you
run a clash detection job, a Results directory displays in the list box under
the job name. Pause the pointer over the Results entry to see if the clash
detection is successful, the number of clashes detected, and when the clash
detection was last run. If any clash groups are created, they also display
under the results of that job.
Jobs can be local or from a library or a job whose local and library copies match. You can save and then modify local copies of the jobs. Once a job is copied locally, it is not automatically synchronized with the library job. It can, however, be manually synchronized.
