MicroStation: Assigning commands to keyboard

There are times when we need to use a command very often, and when this command is not at a click, it can be assigned to a button on the keyboard.

My technicians usually do this with macros or some orders of the keyin, Microstation that is not as easily as AutoCAD, which are text commands in the foreground. Among these, here are some common commands:

xy= used to enter coordinates

dialog cleanup to lift the topological cleaning panel

fence file to export to a separate file the contents of an enclosure (fence)

dialog anotate to make entries from the database to the map

dialog fmanager history to gain access to the features that have been using without having to go to the feature manager.

How to do this task

-Workspace> Function Keys. Here stands a panel where we choose the function button, with the possible combination of Ctrl, Alt or shift, so that we can have up to 96 possible combinations among the 12 function keys.


An example

For example, if I assign the displacement zero in the F1 button command, the procedure would be:

-Workspace > Function Keys

Select Key F1

-Press the button Edit

-Add the command dl = 0

-Okay, and save.

How to apply

Here then, how to apply it. I want to copy to my drawing a series of plots I have as a reference in my file.

– Select objects to copy

– Apply the copy command

– We click on the screen

– Press the F1 – button

– And ready, with this we have copied this data without having to choose a point with the snap, and return to it, a tedious process if we’re doing this with a large amount of data
