How do you copy elements from one .dgn file to another and keep the elements at the same x, y.
In AutoCad I would copy and paste at 0,0...but can't find the command in Microstation.
Reference the file you want to copy the elements from to the file you want to copy the elements to.
Select the elements you wish to copy.
Click "Copy" command.
Snap (tentative) to a location and accept. Snap to an element as you want to be able to replicate this location for the next step.
Snap to the same location and accept.
The Elements will be copied into the new DGN at the same loacation.
Thanks, I try that.
I used the "import cad files" but the dwg file does not come in at the same x,y...why?
Could be different "Global Origin" settings between the DWG and the DGN you are importing the data to OR it could be different units of resolution between the files.
It can sometimes be tricky to work out exactly the differences between files - there are many user defiend settings that can cause differences like you have seen.
