When opening AutoCAD drawings in MicroStation, the custom line style in the first file opened does not display correctly. The custom line style in the second file opened does display correctly.

It is discovered that another line style was used in the second file before saving. Saving with the last custom line style used in the second file makes it not display correctly in the first file.

Product: MicroStation


Linestyles are imported from an AutoCAD line style (*.LIN) file. You need to re-import the correct linestyles from the AutoCAD line style file so that they display correctly.
