New Clash Detection in Update 14 is great. But performance of clash detection is still lacking in comparison to Bentley's competition. No Clash Detection process should take longer than 1 hour. Testing the new U14 Clash Detection takes over 2 hours...

new property called "full style match"
Joan Martinez Serra
In my opinion, text or dimensions should have a new property called "full style match" in the Properties window. This property would be below the "style" property. This property would be just ReadOnly and it would be a boolean property (Yes/No). ...

Reports should have a Query Language
MicroStation's Reports interface is a closed UI. That is, we can manipulate the UI to create a report definition, but that definition remains obscure. It's stored internally in a DGN file. It would be great to have a formal report definition language...

CE - Sheet Indexing columns filters/Sorting
It would be great if we can add columns to the sheet index tool ie Date, File, Size, Description, File name. If we had this we could then use filters and sorting to show the sheets we need to see rather than a full long list which requires a lot...

CE - Sheet indexing Sub folder
Within a lot of Architects practices they use a series of sub folders for sheets, each one defines the type of Sheet file ie 0000 GAs, 1000 Plans, 2000 Sections, 3000 Elevations etc. it would be good if we can offer this in the same way within Sheet...

Microstation CE Explorer sortable columns in sheet index view
Explorer would be much better if it had sortable columns in the Sheet index view like the detail view and you could choose what file attributes to show.

Bing geocoding and geolocation service
Use not only Bing background maps but also add a tool for geocoding by address or reverse geocoding by coordinates. This would simplify search by address as now it is not possible.

We continue to get duplicates where shouldn't be any (works the same in v8i). 1 - Draw a rectangle, a shape, a circle, whatever; 2 - Copy the rectangle (or your element) to the exact same location; 3 - Change one of the elements to get a fill shape;...

We have Microstation 95 .dgn files that are generated using VeriBest95 that is a printed circuit board design software. When I open the 95 in V8i all the holes in the board (which are open circles) translate to letters. We have tried changing the font...

Adding "reviewed/needs review" flag to text with automatic colour change
I often use quite a bit of dummy text in drawings that needs being changed at a later date. At the moment I change the text colour to red so I don't forget which bits to change. This approach is somewhat prone to mistakes, though, if I either forget...

Apply a Temporary "Vertical Exaggeration Factor" (Z axis) to a View for Clarity and Understanding
I have an idea for an enhancement request. It would be great for a user to be able to apply a "vertical exaggeration Z factor" to 2D and 3D views of models (a view attribute - not an element scale factor ) to increase understanding of elevations, slopes...

Clash Detection 2.0 - Combo with Design History / DesignSync / ISM
Clash detection seems to be a really poorly understood process. Management seem to think that this is a 'static' endgame process where you start out with a high number of clashes, have a meeting to 'bang heads together', get the number reduced, hold...
