Cannot locate the Survey Feet option when selecting the Units in the Design File settings, Working Units.
There is a file named units.def that contains all available unit definitions.
Here you can define the master units and sub units for various files.
This file is by default stored in the folder :
However, it is possible that a project or user configuration variable redirects these to alternate locations.
Open the units.def file for editing. This can be found in the location defined by the configuration variable
Workspace > Configuration > MS_CUSTOMUNITDEF
Within this definition file check if the line is listed : # sf,ft,'; Survey Foot; Survey Feet; 39370.0; 12000.0; 1; 1 If so, remove the # symbol as this classifies the line only as a remark so it it not used. Save the Units.def file and the close MicroStation and reopen it. Now when you are changing the units it should now allow the US Survey Feet units to be displayed.
