MicroStation CONNECT: Opening the Snap Mode toolbox (button bar)

Written by: Rod Wing

In previous editions of MicroStation a common user preference was to open the Snap Mode tool box by selecting the Snap icon on the MicroStation status bar then selecting Button Bar from the pop-up menu.

In MicroStation CONNECT there is no tool or menu option labeled Button Bar.  To display the Snap Mode tool box do the following:

  1. Select the Snap icon on the MicroStation status bar has you have always done before.
  2. In the ribbon pop-up select the Snap Mode icon.
