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.
These should be shapes now.
Good job.Thank you very much.
Nice trick! Thank you.
whats the difference between a shape and complex shape and region

Shape is primitive element (aka closed polyline) with 4999 vertex limit, complex shape is closed complex element from grouping any linear elements and no vertex limit. Region can be either created as complex shape or as dynamic shape(associative region) a specific type and should be avoided if not needed. All shapes are mostly used as planar as non-planar shapes cause issues in 3D renderings.
