Measuring Bearings

Hello All.  I am new to MicroStation and I have been taking some on-demand courses through Bentley.  However, I am in dire need of assistance.  I am currently working in a dgn that is MicroStation J version.  Is there any way that I can inquire a lines elements to show me a bearing and distance?  If I use "Ctrl + I" the line will show me a direction, however it's not exactly relative.  The drawing has been rotated to "plan view", if that's even the correct language.  The distances are correct. I'm a cherry when it comes to MicroStation, so please be patient with me.  TIA!
