Inserting from Symbol Library

Inserting from Symbol Library

Inserting from Symbol Library

Hi, I am an AutoCAD user but used Microstation a few years ago  but I am very rusty!

We have a job to update some P&ID drawings which are mainly symbol based, these symbols usually are coming from a sheet with all required symbols on it.
Normally I would have two windows open and simply copy and paste the desired symbol from library to the current drawing but can't seem to do this on Microstation.

We also have a symbol library with individual drawings for each symbol but I'm unsure if there's an 'Insert Block' command? Do I have to use References for this?

Thanks in advance if you can assist me.

PS if anyone knows of any free downloadable MS tutorials please direct me!

RE: Inserting from Symbol Library

If you are using LDDT you will have to build your own symbology. There are free downloads from most of the DOT's. MS tutorials: www.askinga.com, FHWA Web site offers some on Geopak.
Hope this helps,
