Viewing operations Ė are the most popular operations in MicroStation. Frequently we donít pay proper attention to viewing operations, though they can make up to 50 and more percents of all executed operations. Partially you can reduce amount of viewing operations by increasing amount of monitors and increasing monitor's sizes, but such operations as zooming elements, pan view, view synchronization , still will take extra mouse clicks and accordingly extra time. Change View helps significantly reduce time for viewing operations and save up to 30 minutes per day.

What is Change View?

Change View is a MicroStation MDL application, which allows to reduce amount of mouse clicks during drafting and viewing DGN files. Reducing mouse clicks helps to save up to 15% for drafting and viewing operations.

What does Change View do?

   Change View automates the following operations:

  • Centering view when entering point near view boundary
  • Zooming elements (Magnifying glass or Eagle Eye)
  • View synchronization
  • Assigning mouse buttons to user commands (key-ins)
  • Finishing operation using Escape button (as in AutoCAD)
  • Toggle all sinkable dialogs
  • Save and recall of viewing scales
  • Moving view with arrow keys of the keyboard

Why consider Change View?

Letís have a good look at the following example Ė engineer changes the contents of his working view once per 15 seconds. Letís take that Change View helps to save 1 second per operation. Then itís easy to calculate that engineer will save 32 minutes per day on viewing operations. Thus in most cases, pay-back period of Change View takes 2-3 weeks.
