Sharing Files The Pdf Way, Part I - MicroStation tutorial
There are times when sharing source documents is required for effective referencing and interrogation, and there are times when you want to share drawings and project information more securely. When you wish to share information for hard-copy output, review, and markup, PDF is a great choice. MicroStation lets you produce individual PDF documents from DGN and DWG drawings as well as standard Microsoft Office applications or combine these document types into one composite PDF document.

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.

Productivity Corner: Make Your Renderings Look More Realistic
As you begin using the design visualization tools of MicroStation, choosing the rendering method and experimenting with the results is quite common. However, the results can be very unpredictable.

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.
