If I attempt to place text or edit text in the attached file, MicroStation crashes.
This is a new DGN file, created from the delivered 2D metric seed. When I click the Place Text tool button, I see a ghosted Tool Settings box, then a crash dialog with Abort etc. buttons. Then MicroStation quits. I attempted to create a crash log, but since MicroStation quits on that as well I don't know if there's any evidence!
Is there anything wrong with that file?

I removed and re-installed MicroStation CONNECT Update 11 (approx. 2 hours of my time). The text editor is working once more!

[Cr11] I'll have to try that. Microstation crashed 3 times yesterday while using the text dialogue box. We do have some outstanding defects with the text dialogue.
I can only hope Bentley still has a few people working on this buggy, un-finished software. I sure have spent a lot of my time filing service tickets, recording videos, documenting bugs. And still more tickets to file, software is no where near finished.

2 hours? Your computer has to be really slow. Despite of any reinstallation is boring and annoying activity, it can be done in about 20 minutes at max. (and there is still time to manage e.g. e-mails).

I personally do not understand why Bentley use this component (I guess it!s DHMTL control) in MicroStation. From a very first moment it has been released with MicroStation long time ago, plenty of users reported both small and critical, but always annoying problems and bugs. I guess when time everybody spent reporting them to Bentley Support and the bugs were discussed in forums is longer than time required to create own editor from scratch :-(
anyone thought it might be the internet explorer editor..?
the described symptoms look similar..
CAD techs used to browse sites and the IE editor would get hijacked or corrupted..the editor being greyed out was typical .. followed by a MicroStation Abort,Retry, Ignore..Used to fix it by reinstall
of IE not Microstation. Also a corrupt system font could do the same thing.
I know IE doesn't come with win10 anymore but doesn't Bentley still need the editor.. Its part of Edge now isn't it?
Just an idea.. MicroStation does depend on a few other systems.
no problems with the dgn and using update 11.. its not the file
but whats with the new black background in the editor.. yuck!
