I am using PowerDraft connect edition, I am trying to create a batch process, however I cannot find the batch processing utility. I have looked in the backstage "Tools" however it isn't there.
Is there something I need to do to be able to see the batch process, or is there an some other reason the batch process isn't available?
The batch process can be launched by typing Batch process on the search ribbon
this will open the Batch process dialogue
you can also use this key in: MDL SILENTLOAD BATCHPROCESS
in the backstage you can find it under File menu\Tools
note: according to your screen shot you are not running MicroStation Connect but PowerDraft CONNECT
I do not see this option in PowerDraft
Thank you for your response Maria. I tried typing batch into the ribbon and it did not find anything.
I also tried the key-in and received the error "MDL Loader: Could not load application BATCHPROCESS"
Is it possible for MicroStation to be installed without the batch process facilities?
how much cheaper is powerdraft compared to Connect?
Do you still have access to V8i before you went to powerdraft connect?

Marc Thomas mentioned Bentley Systems cloud services. That service is suggested as a substitute for batch processing. I have no experience in using that service so do not endorse its use.

PowerDraft has never had the options to Batch convert or Batch process. I have raised this many times with Bentley and it seems it will never happen. I believe i raised it as an IDEA.PowerDraft is effectively half the price of full MicroStation.
In therms of the Bentley Systems cloud services. I am not sure if this is a free service or £££

Your Idea MS-I-96 is commented: Will not implement.
Of course as Microstation already has Batch process but to confuse users Microstation Powerdraft is and is not Microstation even that has named so, go figure out. The idea has to be raised here but such portal doesn't exist - https://powerdraft.ideas.aha.io
