When i measure distance in Microstation, i want it to place the measurement in units with a line,because i do lot of measuring distances. Can any body help me to do that.


RE: Help

i have a macro that will do just this but how do we attach it here?
email me lorys@alphalink.com.au
it works perfectly in V7 but in V8 you have to disable text editor wordprocessor mode..
before running set you text placement to above element.
set you text size colour weight level etc
then run the macro
Then select the element to lable length and it places the text at cursor above element at the same angle element is
then just data point to confirm.
Close text editor , reset to exit.
