Is there a key-in available to toggle between Azimuth and Bearing? One less click is huge difference
Not an answer, I know. But I can tell you Microstation recognizes either by it's syntax. For example di=100,n45^w gives the same line as di=100,135.
This may help.
The keyin MDL LOAD DGNSET will open the Design File Settings dialog.
try and record vba macro of the steps done by hand and if there is a keyin vba will find it , if it doesn't find one but still works then assign the vba to run from an F key or rm button menu

You had not mentioned which version of MicroStation you are using but I do not believe this would matter as there doesn't appear to be a specific keyin to toggle the Direction Mode setting on the Angle Readout dialog. If you record a VBA macro it shows the keyin Ron mentioned MDL LOAD DGNSET opens this dialog but the following code is used to change this setting.
If DialogBoxName = "Design File Settings" Then
' Set a variable associated with a dialog box
' This only modifies a few bits of the variable it changes. It first
' creates a mask for clearing the bits it will change. Then it gets
' the variable and uses the mask to clear those bits. Finally
' it sets the desired bits in the value and saves the updated value.
lngTemp = Not 255
lngTemp = GetCExpressionValue("dgnSet.directionMode", "DGNSET") And lngTemp
SetCExpressionValue "dgnSet.directionMode", lngTemp Or 2, "DGNSET"
' Remove the following line to let the user close the dialog box.
DialogResult = msdDialogBoxResultOK
End If ' Design File Settings
