    Well folks isn't it nice with the Autodesk-Bentley agreement which might lead to better communication between AutoCAD and MicroStation.....

    But should we not now start talking about really making it easy for people to make the transition between different software platforms?  We can all participate.

    Let us first start with names - Let us call a Layer a Layer in MicroStation too. Historically it all came from…
