Change Existing Layer Color, Linetype, and Weight

I am a new MicroStation CONNECT user.

i have hundreds of drawings to clean up.  I need a way to quickly change existing layers to the correct color, weight, and line type without doing it manually for every drawing.  I would very much appreciate specific steps and not being directed to various help menus.

Thanks,

Koog

  • are any of these files nested reference files?  this will complicate things a bit.

    You can make a script file in the batch processor to select the levels you need to change and make the changes you need and work its way through batches of files

    also you can make /  record a vba macro of doing it typically for one drawing step by step for  level A then level B etc then open another file and run the recorded macro if it works as intended then you can run the batch processor to use your vba macro..over the 100's of files... don't be too ambitious and do too many at once as it take up a lot of resources and nobody can have any of the files open at the same time....
