I was wondering if there was a way to have the option like when drafting in AutoCAD, in the middle of drawing a line you can SHIFT+Right Click and see the menu to choose from. Like if I wanted to draw from mid between 2 points? Can you get MicroStation to do this somehow?
Yes, works very similar to Acad. Shift+rightclick (reset) pops up a view menu, Shift+tentative (middle button, usually) pops up a snaps menu. Many of use Accudraw shortcut keys for particular snaps. You create your own accudraw shortcuts, I use , for snap midpoint.

Or you can try this old ucm file we use in V8i.
It still works in CONNECT.
I just setup a function key with - uc=C:\Bentley-CE\MicroStation\MdlSys\2pt-snap.ucm
You run this and tentative/date the first point, then tentative/date the second point, and your cursor is now at the midpoint of those points.
The keyin should be
uc=(location you saved the ucm)\2pt-snap.ucm
well, I saved it right in C: and assigned uc=C:\2pt-snap.com . MS returned "C symbol isn't defined". (Powerdraft CE 10).
It should be 2pt-snap.ucm not 2pt-snap.com.
oh sure, just a typo in my answer, not in the shortcut:
Can Powerdraft run User Commands (uc's) ?

UCM (User Command Macros) is unsupported feature from V8 2004 Edition (16 years ago!).
It existed in V8 generation (was not removed), but was not ported officially to CONNECT Edition.
