I try to export one dgn file to shp but the text (street name, etc) is exported as point and i loose the texty information.
how do I solve the problem?
Text e.g. Street name is from a schema defined in GSA or you are placing it using Place text option.
If defined in GSA is the text defined as Point-text type or simple point feature ? Thanks, Anupama

without knowing more details (Bentley Map version, what is your XFM project etc.) it's hard to say what is wrong.
In general text is always exported as points, because SHP format supports only point, linear and polygon geometries. It means text elements have to be converted into points and text itself converted to element attribute ... which I am afraid is not supported by default (but my knowledge of SHP export is limited).
I found similar discussion with VBA macro discussed, maybe it can help you.

Hi, the attached ZIP file includes a VBA text2xfm.mvba with documentation that loads a business property from a text string. Finally you will be able to export text string to a (point) SHP file, a XFM schema is not needed.
