I need to convert the complex shapes to shapes in my project .How can I do it in batch?
Do these complex shapes contain arcs, or are they just lines/line strings? Microstation usually automatically converts "complex shapes" to "shapes" on creation if they are all linear segments. You may be able to use the Facet Curve tool to eliminate arcs, but you should check that manually before trying to use it in a batch. You may not get the results you expect on the first try.

All of these lines are complex shapes. I want to batch convert them to shape.It takes a lot of time if I do it one by one.
What are the steps and tools you use to make them "plain" shapes now?Is it every element in your drawing, or is it just elements on a certain level?
You may need to develop a macro or a script file to run this as a batch, so it helps to break down the individual steps
Unfortunately, I don't know how to create a macro. Can you help me with this?
Let's start with the basic information about what you are trying to do.
How do you know which elements you want to convert? Are they everything in the drawing? All complex shapes on one level? How would we know which elements you want to select?
Do any of these complex elements have arcs or curves or anything non-linear? How were they created?
What tools are you using right now to change them? Step by step, what process are you using?
Which (specific) version of the software are you running? Do you have any programming experience at all?You can try to record a macro (I find my "Record" under the Modeling workflow in the Utilities tab, but I run ORD which might be different). This would not give you everything you need to create your batch script, but it might give you a hint for some of the commands)
