How do I convert metric units to english units.
Go to Settings > Design File > Working Units > change the unit from meters to feet or vice versa. The units will convert to the equivalent unit.

Also If you consistently go back and forth here are some keyin to put into a pull down menu or function key.
set units Meters;vba execute ActiveSettings.CoordinateAccuracy=5;
set units Millimeters;vba execute ActiveSettings.CoordinateAccuracy=1
set units feet inches;vba execute ActiveSettings.CoordinateAccuracy=1;
set units feet inches;vba execute ActiveSettings.CoordinateAccuracy = msdAccuracyHalf
set units feet inches;vba execute ActiveSettings.CoordinateAccuracy = msdAccuracy16th

Eric Milberger, could you add a little assistance for me.
the standard I have to work with Set units inches inches works, but actually they are in Inches and Custom
which is tenths
I hope you can assist me on this or someone, I have tried VBA record several times, am not able to get to work
I tried to load the mdl DGNSET and get the key-Ins but when you load it, the keyIn section is grayed out.

The original post, and Eric Milberger's response, were in 2013. I haven't noticed any post by him in recent years. Eight years on things may have changed.
It's best if you start a new post.

You don't need VBA to set your DGN model coordinate system.

Thank you for the great advise, I saw the partial answer worked Set inches inches, so assumed it would be easy for someone who seemed to know the key-In so well. I had looked and looked, even in a MicroStation reference manual.
I will try to follow your information. not sure what the DGN file (Menu insert is ) I had added the pictures showing I was trying to open the CUSTOM section and then put in the numbers. So appreciate the input.
I sure admire some of the amazing helps you post online, Mind blowing to me, but amazing and so thoughtful of you to help so man as Jan does also. I read a lot of questions and you two show up a lot.
