Copy-Paste Entire Rows/Columns in tables
Copy-Paste entire rows or columns of data just like you can in excel. It appears we can copy from excel and paste into tables this way but not copy from the table.

Clipped Elements Still Recognized
After clipping a reference file the snaps and flood commands still recognize the elements within the reference but outside the clip boundary.

Raster displayed and printing on top of elements
One setting I have yet to find in Connect that was crucial for preparing plans in V8i was the setting for rasters to print behind all elements no matter the position of the reference in which the raster was placed within the reference sequence list in...

Compress Design - Add an 'ALL' box to turn on\off compress options at once
When compressing a file, I'd like to be able to turn on or off all options with one click, not manually select/deselect all the compress options.

make Text word wrap work without spaces
would be nice if word wrap would work without needing spaces. we typically do a pen table replacement for the full file path when printing. but the paths are going off the page. word wrap doesnt work most of the time because it only wraps whole words...

Add "Invert selection" to context menu
Enhancement request: Sometimes I want to choose all elements of a drawing but a few. It would be way more handy to just select those few and then click on "Invert selection" (just like in Adobe Photoshop) instead of holding the STRG key and then draw...

Option to Restrict Undo to current model
It would be great if you could restrict Undo to the activ model. Currently, pressing Ctrl+Z would undo the placement of element you did in the previous model. Workflow: A design with several models. Place some elements in model A Change to...

Tool or setting to toggle text/dimensions/notes background on/off
MicroStation needs a simpler way to turn text background on or off in text, dimensions and notes. We do not always use Background, so we do not have it set on by default. When we do need it, it requires a special trip into the text styles dialog to...

Item Type value by configuration variable and lock it
I would like to have the opportunity to get a value set to an Item Type by a configuration variable. That could for example be the variable CONNECTUSER_NAME. But I also would like to have the opportunity to lock that value when set the first time. This...

MicroStation needs ability to toggle on the display of vertices for elements. Similar to how you can display them when SELECTING a feature.... LEAVE THEM ON so that I know where they are when actually USING A TOOL like Delete Vertex. (Also the categories...

Associate Element Template with Ribbon Button
From the beginning of MicroStation CAD Managers have built custom tools and menus that do nothing more that set the correct symbology and start that corresponding tool. At first it was User Commands. Simple scripts that set correct level, color, weight...

Item Types: Add a way to make Item Type Properties invisible to the user
I would like to recommend an enhancement to item types to give a function that was available with TagSets. with TagSets you could create one tagset with all the tags you want. and then there is a display column to choose to display that tag in the...

Explorer: Add more criteria/options to advanced search
When searching for multilines in references I found that you can't do that, only in models. So I'd like to have a search option for references added to the list. I'd also like to have the option to search multilines by their style added.

Picklists: Can a Picklist have a description as well as a name?
It would be useful, when managing Picklists, for a Picklist to have a description as well as a name. For example, a Picklist named "Door Furniture" might be described "Assign this Picklist to Item Type 'Door' property 'fittings'."

Please could you reinstate the 'ins' key over-type mode in the text editor!
Please could you reinstate the 'ins' key over-type mode in the text editor! Apologies for my earlier post elsewhere on this subject, I just stumbled upon this part of the forum and this seems to be the correct place to make my point I really...

Select all should select references that have treat as element turned on
Select all should select references that have treat as element turned on. Currently references set to treat as element can be selected by dragging a selection box but not by select all which is illogical.

Add filter field/sorting function to multiline drop down list
We use a growing number of multilines for various things and we're getting to a point where the list is growing too long to browse. So I'd love to see either a filter field in both the drop down list and the multiline manager or even a possibilitiy...

Parametric Constraints to a text box
It would be nice if you could apply a parametric constraint to a text box similar to how you add one for a line. This will help with offsetting from text that could be variable in length.

Parametric cells with lines on different levels
It would be helpful if parametric cells could contain lines on different levels which stay after placing the parametric cell. The behaviour I am looking for would be the same as with "normal" cells. Everything that is on a specific layer in the cell...

By Priority, By Transparency
We have the ablity to edit a level to by colour, by linestyle, by weight. It would be good to be able to do this with priority transparency and class as well

Pick more attributes through ALT + left mouse click
Some of you may already know that you can pick and subsequently activate layer, line style, weight and colour by left-clicking on an element with the ALT key held down instead of changing those settings one by one. I would love to see this extended...

Dimension a line as you draw
It would be a real time saver if a user could create a custom line that would have the ability to have the dimension of said line labeled as you actively draw the line.

Dynamic report table with items
When creating a report and include items and then placing the report table the values in the table should be fields that can be updated when changing the values on the objects. I have tried it by manually goin and edit the field and inserted a field...

Pick list for property definitions with dependencies in an Item Type
It would be great to have the possibilities to create pick lists with dependencies. With that I mean that if I have for example three property definitions in an item type and I select a value from a pick listfor the first definition, the second pick...

Item Types attached to a Cell in a Library should convert to an Item Type instance when that cell is placed in a DGN model
It's possible to define an Item Type and attach an instance to a cell model in a cell library. When that cell is placed as a cell instance in a DGN model, the Item Type instance should be converted to an instance attached to the cell header after placement...
