Add support for DWG Block Visibility States
AutoCAD allows for setting different visibility states in their blocks. These need to be supported in MicroStation, not only for better DWG file interoperability, but it would be a great enhancement to shared cells as well.

PDF Layers - Expose the Tree Hierarchy in the GUI
A PDF with layers contains a Tree Hierarchy when viewed in Acrobat Viewer and other PDF Viewers. But within MicroStation, the Layers are presented in a flat list. This makes it much harder to determine which layer names control which displays. MicroStation...

Item Type Picklists should comprehend dates
A Picklist can accept text, integer and double data. It would be useful if in addition they could accept ISO date s.

Mstn CE: PW Share / Delta Transfers as standard
Bentley and Microsoft seems to be moving more and more functionality to the cloud. Most large projects would have something like MS Sharepoint to provide transaction services for MS Office formats, and increasingly pdf's as well. Having everything on...

Better logging for WMS issues
I think Bentley could make a better logging option for WMS errors as the "old camera" error checking. Replacing detailed xml error with camera picture is not a good approach. In WMS requests Bentley desktop apps explicitly require to have errors returned...

Full support of DWG annotation scaling
The AutoCAD based annotation scaling is far beyond the Microstations annotation scaling. Autocad has element based n-scale techniques to place notes at different origins with different sizes for different scales. Text styles property for texts and notes...

When Saving As Using Level Remapping, Saved View Need to Have Their Level Tables Remapped

Allow Users to use the Models dialog box to Change Which Model is the Default Model

Mesh Edge Display for (Shared) Cells and IFC
The new mesh edge display tool is great. It really shines when you compare how clean and legible the imported mesh objects are compared to the competition. It would be good to follow through on the advances introduced. It would be great to enhance...

Maintain 2d dynamic view in 3D model for dgn to dwg translation
would be nice to see an option where dynamic views referenced into a 3D default model could maintain the 2D from the dynamic view for dgn to dwg translation. When the dynamic view is referenced into a 3D model, it shows the dynamic view as 3D, even when...
