Our organization is planning to move all DGN file operations from International Feet to U.S. Survey Feet. Design file settings will change as shown:
Master units: FEET ---> U.S. SURVEY FEETSub-Units: INCHES ---> U.S. SURVEY INCHESResolution: 12000 PU/FOOT ---> 12000 PU/U.S. SURVEY FOOT
We will have to convert our customized files and resources:-- Design files-- Cell libraries-- Seed files-- Border files (DGN)-- DgnLib's
As for the ProStructures application:
1. Will the application work correctly with design files having Survey Feet working units and storage units.
2. Are there configuration files and resources that also have to be converted to U.S. Survey Feet? Are there variables or other settings that will need adjusting? Do we to adjust the application's:-- cell libraries-- dgnlib's-- seed files-- cfg files-- xml files-- macros-- databases
3. Anything else?
Hello Warren Malveau,
Thanks for posting this query in Bentley Community Forum.
Yes we support this and we have improved in our latest CONNECT Edition. But for further investigation can you please share your dgnlib's and seed file.

When converting design files be advised that changing the resolution will result in a change of geometry if you are not careful. see the following articles:
