I would like to know if it is possible to place a parametric cell via actual coordinates? Because when i place a cell, the format of XYZ changes.
I want to place them via this coordinates:
But when use place active cell, the XYZ numbers change to this format:
So this should be the image on the top.
I want to place them in actual coordinates, like this format:
I am using Microstation Connect Edition.
With the focus in the AccuDraw window, use the shortcut 'P' to be able to key-in 'M' (multiple) or 'P' (single) points in XYZ. AccuDraw always give the delta x, y, z from the last point when entering data.
Hi, thank you it worked. Is it also possible to change the active angle of the cell by key-in? i tried using AA=, but it didn't work.
From the Help file - I have tried it (AA=62.5) and it does work - a cell will be placed at this angle once it is set. [EDIT - I used a 'normal' cell, not a parametric cell. I will test that also.]
ACTIVE ANGLE [ angle ]AA= [ angle ]Tip: Using the AA=<angle> alternate key-in to set the active angle can be faster than using the controls in the Active Angle category. For example, to set the active angle to 45 degree, key in AA=45. If angle is omitted, the current setting is displayed in the Status Bar.
EDIT - the place parametric cells dialog does not 'read' the active angle. I will get a defect logged.

Thank you Mark, is there any other keyin i could use to change the active angle of a parametric cell before placing it? Because i know it would take time for this defect to be corrected.
Not that I know of, I am sorry to say. If I do find one, I will let you know.
