New in MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 14 - Item Types integrated in (Technology Preview) Text Favorites Manager

Text Favorite Manager in MicroStation CONNECT Edition hosts a variety of element property types to enable reusable property-driven annotations.  The text favorites created in the Text Favorite Manager can contain placeholder fields as well as fields with property values. You can now associate an Item type in the Field Type while creating or managing a text favorite in the Text Favorite Manager dialog. You can select the Item Type and the Item Type property definition available in the Text Favorite Manager Dialog.

Once you select the Item Type and the Item Type Property Definition, they will be available in the Text Editor.

This enhancement in the Text Favorite Manger dialog will allow you to work with greater flexibility and let you work with detailed information about the elements in your design.

We look forward to hearing from you about how useful this enhancement is and if you have any suggestions for improvement.
