i have too many drawing files that all has text in lines format or dropped text. How can i repair make it text again ? is there any way i have bentley Descartes v8i series 5 version. Please can someone help me with this
Descartes SS5 should work for converting the raster text to text elements. I've not had very much success attaching PDF's in Raster Manager and using the Descartes vectorization tools. You will need to print the PDF to a different format, I would suggest using a modified version of the MicroStation tiff driver.
Edit the default tiff.pltcfg file and up the resolution. The default is 300dpi, I would change it to something like 1000dpi
Print your file using the Monochrome color setting in the print dialog along with this driver.
I've done this multiple times when given pdf's to vectorize, and get much better results printing a higher resolution, monochrome tif image.
FYI... The OCR options for picking up text and cells have been removed from the CONNECT Edition of Descartes.

this will take very long time for every file i was looking a way like select those broken text and with convert option to convert all lines to text.
is there any othere way to do it fastly and simple as AutoCAD.
That's the only MicroStation based way of doing OCR. If you want something faster/simpler you'll have to find another application.
Corel draw, adobe illustrator can do this stuff... Scan to cad provided you use the right settings and turn it all to tiff.. then dack to dwg then dgn but your level names are going to get all screwed up... IMHO for critical text like title block and dimensions its still faster to REDRAW these ... one question's where this data came from and why the text was exploded / dropped in every plan... maybe you could source it and not have it dropped and use that as a ref attached to copy just whats needed to update plans assuming they are older and not uptodate...

Or export to v7 DGN and use Cellvage

Is that company still operating in Oz ? and are their stuff compatible with V8iss10 and CE too?
