Using the Level Manager, right click the level to move and choose Remap Elements from the popup menu. Then just select the destination level and click OK. Note that this method will keep the original level in the design file.
If you're using the 2004 Edition of MicroStation, you can achieve the same results by using the following keyin:
Level Element Move Dest:xxx yyyWhere xxx is the name of the destination level and yyy is the level to move. The destination level specification is optional. If it's not specified, then the elements are moved to the 'Default' level. For example, to move the elements from a level called notes to one called annotation by using this keyin:
level element move dest:annotation notes
To move elements to another level - And delete the original level from the file
An alternate method is to move elements from one level to another and then delete the original level. To do this use the level purge keyin. For example, to move all elements from notes to annotation and delete notes, the keyin would be level purge dest:annotation notes. Specifying the destination level is optional. If it's not defined, then the elements will be moved to the level named 'Default'. Use caution with this keyin since it will move all elements in all models from the specified source level.
For additional inforamtion regarding the usage of the noted keyins, please refer to MicroStation's Help > Level Key-in Format.
