In V7 Workmode, reference clip boundary (or masks) that contain arcs or
curves are not retaining after file save.
(The same clip worked in MicroStation V7/J)


Clip is beyond V7 limit of 101 vertices.

Reason it worked in V7/J:
Due to the 101 vertex limit in V7 clips (for both boundaries and masks),
MicroStation J will "stroke" the curved elements into lines. Since V8
has a higher limit (5000), the "stroke" process is not needed. Even
though it is a V7 file (V7 Workmode), the reference system does not
change the clipping process.

Use lines segments instead of true arcs or curves to clip the reference.
The "Drop curves" tool could also be used to "stroke" the curves into
