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?
Not sure I follow exactly what you are looking to do, can you supply an image or DGN with the intended result?
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.
From what I've seen of the export options and doing some basic testing, MicroStation can't give you what you seek aside from the line geometry. I think the only way to achieve those pin marks is:
There might be a way to do some of the work in Excel, perhaps somehow being able to import data from a CSV. Its just conjecture on my part as I don't do anything with Google Earth.
