Freeware

These MicroStation programs are free to use. No support. No bug fixes (except if I want to). No obligations.

That said. Go ahead and try them out!

Utility VBA (V8i/CONNECT)

This VBA project contains commands that helps you document levels, line styles and color tables. The commands will layout the information in a format that is easy to print. If you use Print Organizer the shapes can be used to print the information to multi page PDF-files.

Put the downloaded file SC_Utility.mvba in a directory listed by MS_VBASEARCHDIRECTORIES. If the project should be loaded automatically, also add MS_VBAAUTOLOADPROJECTS in a suitable cfg-file.

MS_VBASEARCHDIRECTORIES > $(_USTN_WORKSPACESTANDARDS)VBA/
MS_VBAAUTOLOADPROJECTS > SC_Utilities.mvba
