I've encountered a few behaviors with this that I wanted to bring up...

 

1) When checking a file back in to the Vault using the plug-in and then I review the status in Vault Collaboration Tool, the status is shown as Edited Out of Turn, which is unexpected behavior.

 

2) Checking out a file does not work as expected within the plugin. I would recommend combining Open and Check Out similar to what is provided with in the VCT (Get/Checkout).

 

3) General opening of .dgn files has been goofed up on my system with the installation of the plugin. I do not want this behavior as our users run workspaces that are specially designed to run with ease when opening dgns. Is there a command that is being passed to ustation.exe that could be causing this that I can simply disable?

 

Thanks,

Eddie
