When I hit the "print" icon", it brings up the "Fence" window. (I already selected the fence.) I also tried the "print" under the "File" pull down menu; same problem. I can select "print preview" and print a drawing using that window, but you can't format the print that way.
I hadn't used MicroStation V8i in about 6-8 weeks. I had no trouble printing before now.
This may be a question for the printing forum, but first I'm curious. What do you see when you go to Workspace>Customize>MenuBar>Main Menu>Print under the key-in option as in the picture?
This is the key-in being implemented by MicroStation when you hit the print option under the File pull-down. If it's not DIALOG PLOT, then it could be causing your problem.

Hey, Eric. Marion at Bentley support got me going. For some reason, the “print” window was opening but was hidden somewhere. He had me go under the “Window” tab, and way down at the bottom (under View Toolbox) are all the windows that are open. The Print window was there; selecting it brought it back to where it could be seen. Now it seems to work like usual. Really weird, but now I think I’m good.
if ticked untick if not ticked then tick
Then go to the main tools pallet and choose the power selector ( big black arrow) and your power selector should be back, choose the copy icon from main tools and its dialog box should also be visible so now its all fixed again, try the with control p.. if all is as it should be..
Now go find the pop set ball button on your main menus along the top it will either be a green ball ( what we want it to be) or red ball, if red click it to make it green, now move your power selector pallet to where you always want it to pop up on the screen so now all your tools will pop there, dont close dialog boxes anymore when you finish with a tool just choose the power selector or go to your preferences and enable Escape key to quit a tool.. then from now on just use the escape key instead to quit a tool over close a pallet tool...
This approach always works for when things go missing ..
