There is no key-in for PLACE TEXT ORIGIN or PLACE DIALOGTEXT ORIGIN. The key-in PLACE TEXT | DIALOGTEXT defaults to the last method used for placing text.
Use string of DMSG key-ins to place text by origin:PLACE DIALOGTEXT ICON = activate the Place Text toolDMSG FOCUSDIALOG TOOLSET = give focus to the Tool Settings dialog boxDMSG FOCUSITEM 0 = give focus to the first item in this dialog boxDMSG ACTION OKAY = open this itemDMSG CURSOR LINEBEGIN = go to the first item in the drop down listDMSG ACTION OKAY = accept the selection in the drop down listSolution is valid for MicroStation XM Edition, MicroStation 2004 Edition, and MicroStation V8i.
This is the first time I have ever seen the DMSG keyins used to manipulate the tool settings. Is this documented anywhere? This has may potential uses and could benefit from a more in-depth Article.
