Tool Setting Dialog unpredictable behavior
Quite often the dialog doesn’t show up at all. I have to go for Settings/Tool settings to get the dialog, e.g. for “Change element attributes” where it’s really needed. Then, if it does come out, the dialog occupies a quarter of the screen, hiding views! Another annoying issue.
I´m sure there are switches to get around this, but I simply can´t find out… /Ingemar
You can always open the settings dialog for the active tool by pressing CTRL + Spacebar if it doesn't show up automatically.
I use this really often.
Are you able to set that up outside of the PopSet tool?
In CE you have to dig to find it.

To directly access the PopSet settings use the following keyin:dialog popset properties
Actually this keyin isn't mentioned anywhere in the German Microstation help file...

Nor in the English help file. I find that the help file is not helpful when searching for a key-in. Many obscure key-ins are not documented, thus ensuring that they will remain obscure.

That's when Browse Key-in function of the Key-in Window is your friend.
