Automatically Update Spreadsheet Links Every Time Microstation Files Are Opened
One of the problems that MicroStation users face is that MicroStation's LiveLinks software often does not automatically update spreadsheet or word processing data when a MicroStation file [in which this data is linked] is opened. The data is not automatically updated even though the spreadsheet or word processing file has been modified and saved after the import. In addition, the links created with LiveLinks, if later unlinked, tend to create unselectable elements in a design file.
Recover Missing Elements From Your Microstation Files

Productivity Corner: Dimensioning Tools Keep Your Styles In Order
With the introduction of MicroStation v8 2004 Edition, dimensioning tools are combined and tool settings are expanded for quick access to settings commonly changed during dimensioning. The selection order for dimension points has been redesigned to give you an early dynamic display of the dimension. Previously you would have selected the start point, the location, and then the end point of the dimension. Now you select the start point and end point of the dimension, followed by the location.

Productivity Corner: Microstation`s Rendering Capabilities
Wiremesh differs from wireframe display in that curved surfaces are represented by a polygonal mesh, resulting in a more realistic representation of curved surfaces. Although wiremesh representations are useful, they present a lot of information on the screen, as the surfaces are presented as being transparent. For this reason, I use hidden line display options whenever possible.
