Can a file that was created in MicroStation SS3 that contains civil cells be opened in MicroStation SS2?


If a DGN file with a civil cell is created in MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) and the DGN file is then opened in MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 2), the elements created by the civil cell will be visible, but not editable. The exception to this is if the civil cell contains a terrain model, because the Terrain element type was not recognized prior to MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3). Although the terrain model is not visible, there is no data loss and the DGN file can be reopened in MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3), where the terrain model will again be visible.
