(Microstation user learning Bentley Map). When using a .ucf file which was created by export from Bentley Geospatial Administrator, is there a way to add variables like these to the exported .ucf file?
Currently the "File Open" window defaults to the filepath listed in the Workspace Root Directory, which is where the workspace files are stored, but is not where the Map files are stored.

Yes, you can define (create new or modify existing) MicroStation variables as a part of XFM project. You can do it in GSA > Geospatial Project > User Workspaces > selected workspace > Macros. Any macro definition (GSA name for MicroStation variable) will be added to exported project.

Simple question but not easy to answer ;-)
There are tens and tens (probably hundreds literally) configuration variables, because Bentley Map is based on power platform and at the end there is a merge of MicroStation and Bentley Map variables. And some variables are not defined by default and some are defined only if a specific functionality is activated.
Anyway, in my opinion good places are:
Personally I see not big benefit from the reading of lists of variables, because there are too many of them. It's good to do a quick check what can be set, but if you wil encounter a specific problem, it's probably more efficient to ask here in the forum if some behaviour can be changed and defined by some variable.
