So, you wanna become a CAD Administrator? Or perhaps just get a better grip about workspaces. Aside from the articles on AskInga, there's a wealth of resource material out there. Here's my list.
2006-03-01 Aquire and post archived articles from Bentley (Thanks Phil).
Some of these resource materials are written for MicroStation 95, and MicroStation /J.
Although somewhat out of date, many of the same concepts will apply in MicroStation V8. Happy Reading.
