Remove User Data – InRoads V8i

Written by Bob Mecham.
When manipulating graphics displayed from InRoads in MicroStation those elements can disappear when the alignment is redisplayed.
Example– If you create striping plans by copying the CL alignment parallel when the CL alignment is redisplayed, all of your striping disappears.
Solution– The InRoads tool Remove User Data will remove the InRoads tags from the copied elements.  When this command is completed InRoads will no longer recognize those copied elements and will no longer disappear when the CL is redisplayed.  There are three choices for Removing User Data- Single, Level, and Fence.
