Good morning. Wondering if there are any previous Auto CAD users out there who could shed some light on making the drafting in Microstation a bit more similar (or exactly like) Auto Cad.
Thank you. Have a good day everyone.

Mary has pointed out very well a way to achieve what you want .. however I feel your doing your drafters a disservice as they will never really learn microstation in its un modified environment and if they move to another employer they will be useless, bewildered and frustrated using microstation you essentially, but unintentionally making them tied to your custom set up .
I have seen this in some companies with autocad was so customised, super efficient to work with there, that drafters who learned acad on the job there were unable to use autocad anywhere else ( ie new employer) and had to be retrained and demoted to junior status.
You just have to become bilingual in CAD and if you only use mstn for back drafting once in a while then the keyin DWG or the \ and acad command keyin is a good work around .. but better yet is to learn accudraw and the basic tools... plenty of free tutorials and videos... also print out the help on DWG and autocad users .. good info there to assist acad users with little microstation experience..
I have the same issue when I'm compelled to use autocad I just have had to learn it and use the tools as they are and turn off my microstation brain / interpreter ... It is the same with languages for bilinguals like myself you have to turn off English brain and don't translate just use the local language...
