MicroStation Tip: Import Linestyles into a DGN Library
Written by: Bob Mecham
Linestyles can be delivered in the workspace two ways. One option is to point to the Linestyle resource file (RSC) using the variable MS_SYMBRSRC. The second options is to import a MicroStation linestyle resource file (RSC) into the DGN Library file and then use the MS_DGNLIBLIST variable.
To import a linestyle into a DGN file use the Linestyle Editor dialog box.
1. From the MicroStation pull down menu Element > Line Styles > Edit. The Line Style Editor dialog will appear.
2. From the Line Style Editor dialog pull down menu File > Import > MicroStation Resource File (RSC).
3. Path to the file and click the Open button. The Select Linestyles to Import dialog will appear.
4. Select the linestyles in the list and click the Import button. The linestyles will be imported into the file.
Note: if you want to delete a linestyle name use the keyin “delete unused linestyles [name]”

Is there a way to print a list of the line styles? Ideally, it would be with the graphical representation of each line style, but a list of just names would be useful.

Hi David, yes we have a macro that will draw a line for each linestyle in the drawing.
