anyone have a way to delete all saved views in a file before I write something to do it? Doesn't look like keyin will do all of them.
you might find it via vba recorder

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but if you open the Saved Views dialog irt should list all of these saved views which you can then just select all and delete.

I think the intention was not to have to do it by hand, but the way you described is the only way I know of without maybe writing some custom vba routine...
this is correct. How to do it in a single swipe. I have a tool that generates saved views based on properties in the model and it can create a lot of them. When I select all of them in the Saved View tool, MicroStation CONNECT is locking up or processing for an absorbent amount of time. So far it looks like I will need to write a vba macro that can basically build a list of all of them in the dgn and then execute a keyin to delete them and plug in the saved view name from the list.
the recorder is not seeing the actions inside of the saved view dialog box. Not going to work at the moment.
