I am looking for a way to set the zoom level in a view to a specific scale, say 1" = 20'. Is there a way to do this in MicroStation? There is a way to accomplish this in other products like ArcGIS, for instance.
The equivalent Bentley Systems GIS product is Bentley Map.
Usually we draw everything at 1:1 with MicroStation. MicroStation's drawing and measurement tools use real-world coordinates. Scaling comes into play when creating a sheet model for printing. In general, knowing the 'scale' of a view isn't helpful. If you want to know how big something is, just measure it.
What do you want to do with the scale of a view other than emulate ArcGIS?
