I've posted some articles about using matrices and transforms with MicroStation VBA to rotate or move (translate) a DGN element.
The articles explain the purpose and use of Matrix3d and Transform3d, and how to apply them to an element.

The code works by creating a cell or text node and adjusting the origin and size of each text element within that…
I've written an example C++ app that performs CRUD operations on DgnLinks. The example includes source code.
