Attach the saved view of a Reference File.
MicroStation /J - To attach the saved view of a reference file coincidently, use the following keyin:RF=filename,logical,description;view name;X:1;resetIf you omit the 'reset', MicroStation will prompt you for the location which you can enter with a datapoint.
MicroStation V8 - You need at least five arguments to the RF= command to keep it from asking you for moreinformation. RF=file_name, model, logical_name, description, saved_view
For example, RF="public works.dgn",Streets,,,EastSide will attach the saved view called EastSide from the file named Public Works.dgn. In this example, the logical and description are by passed by simply using a comma.
The RF keyin has several options that can increase productivity. Please refer to MicroStation's Help > Attach Reference for specifics.
