Is there a good way to export text or text nodes to a Google Earth KMZ file from MicroStation/ OpenX Connect Edition?
Currently text is exported as shapes/ fills, which can make a KMZ file really large and slow (in addition to it not looking very neat). I was hoping each text node could be exported as a point/ Placemark with the Placemark name being the text in the text node.
Is there any way to do this, either natively or by a macro?
Maybe by exporting to sketchup and then from sketchup to KML.
Not sure I follow exactly what you are looking to do, can you supply an image or DGN with the intended result?
In the Google Earth Tools Settings Dialog you can choose to Include Properties. This data will be displayed as placemarks in Google Earth.
I don't know if this will do what you want, but it is worth a try.
how do you get rid of place marks generally.. Also I have custom line styles for line making and it comes across but lots of place marks and DGN StyleNo as Big white text.. Tried dropping linestyles helped a little but these DoT linestyles are very complex...?

What I'm getting and what I'm looking for are illustrated in the figure below.
The top text nodes have been exported to Google Earth KMZ and they are big and slow because the Arial letters are converted into shapes.
What I would like to export is shown below - the next nodes are exported as pins instead, with the text as the name of the pin.
