    Hi,

    I am not sure if this forum is the right place for me to ask my question and I apologize if it is. However, in the tool box (directly under the heading above, in blue)called “TRIM MULTIPLE”, it shows the “trim element” highlighted as would happen when it was clicked on.

    My problem is, I seem to have lost this particular icon! Its neighboring icon to the right, the inteli trim icon has not vanquished though.

    How do I restore the icon I have lost?
    Regards,
    Rod

    Rod, my first try would be to right click on the toolbar and from the list of tools make sure it is checked on to display. If that is not it then it probably has been deleted from the interface accidentally. Test that theory by creating a new interface. Go to the MicroStation manager and create a new Interface from the drop down and see if the icon reappears.
    HTH,
