Update Sequence Dialog

Used to change the display order for all operations that involve updating the view windows.

You can access this dialog from the following:
  • References dialog: Properties > Update Sequence
  • Raster Manager dialog: Settings > Update Sequence

List box Lists the active DGN file and attached references in the order in which they are displayed.

To change the position of a file in the sequence, you must first select it. Use the <Ctrl> and <Shift> keys to select multiple files.

To change the position of a file (or files) in the sequence:

  • Drag the file to a new position.
  • Use the arrow buttons to change the file's position.

The list box includes these columns:

  • Slot — The Slot number is a unique number assigned to the reference. The slot number of a reference does not change, even if a reference's position in the sequence changes.
  • File Name — Source file for the reference. "Raster References" indicates reference raster files. Their position in the sequence can only be adjusted as a group, and they must occupy the first or last position.
  • Model — The model name for the reference.
  • Logical Name — The logical name for the reference.
Arrow icons Moves the selected file(s) up or down in the sequence.
Default Restores the default update sequence set by the configuration variables MS_REF_MASTERFILELAST_SHEET, MS_REF_MASTERFILELAST_DRAWING, and MS_REF_MASTERFILELAST_DESIGN.
