The Export DGN command allows the user to export any loaded vector data to a MicroStation DGN v8 format file.
When selected, the command displays the DGN Export Options dialog (pictured below) which allows the user to set up the export. The dialog consists of a DGN Options panel, a Tiling panel, and an Export Bounds panel which allows the user to set up the portion of the loaded vector data they wish to export.
Allows the user to control how large display label text will be in the created file.
Value is used to specify the resolution unit saved in the DGN file.
A .prj projection file describing the projection of the coordinates in the file will automatically be created.
The entire DGN file will be marked as 3D and any features that have a elevation data associated with them will be stored as 3D features.
Any attributes associated with exported features will be saved as tags in the resulting file. Note: This can significantly slow down export time in some cases.
The global origin is set to the minimum valid negative values rather than at (0,0) as is standard.
Any lines that are near black in color will be replaced with a white line automatically. This is useful for getting dark colored lines to show up when the exported DGN file is viewed in an application that uses a black background.
