Key-In Commands
Key-ins are typed instructions entered into the Key-in window to control MicroStation.
The effect of nearly all key-ins can be obtained using the graphical user interface.
However, a key-in can be quicker at times, especially since MicroStation recognizes
abbreviations.
The Key-in Window is used to browse, construct, and enter key-ins. If the key-ins of a
single application (MicroStation or selected MDL) are browsable, the title bar identifies
the application.
The Key-in window opens when any of the following occurs:
Utilities > Key-in is chosen
Help > Key-in Browser is chosen. If the window is docked, it is undocked and
simultaneously expanded to its full size.
With the focus at home, <Enter> is pressed. The window pops up at the location of the
pointer and closes when the pointer is removed from the window.
If you are using the default function key menu, <F9> is pressed. If the window is already
open or docked, this sends input focus to the window

The following are examples of commonly used key-ins:
dp=100000,-100000
Display Depth - Sets the range in which elements are visible
along the “z” axis. Example: if the display depth is set to 500,-500. Elements that have
an elevation greater than 500 or less than -500 will not show in the view. If an element
starts within and ends outside the display range, only the part within is visible.
az=0
(3D only) Used to graphically set a view's Active Depth — the plane,
parallel to the screen in a view, on which data points are placed. For viewindependent ACS, Active Depth is the depth at which the origin of the ACS triad is
located. The Set Active Depth tool relocates the ACS to the set point in the view.
dx=100,0|25
Used in conjunction with the Copy Increment Text enabled, click on
a number you want incremented. In the Key-In window, type “dx=(x distance),(y
distance)|(number of copies)” and press enter.

Precision Input Key-ins
Precision input is a method of entering data points with the keyboard. Using this
method, you can specify the exact location of a data point by specifying any of the
following:

Design plane coordinates, the distances along the x-axis and y-axis (and z-axis in
3D) from the global origin, which has the coordinates “0,0” (“0,0,0” in 3D).
xy= x, y,(z) 
Measured along the x and y (and z) axis from the Global Origin.
Distance and angle relative to the view x-axis, from the most recently entered
tentative point or data point.
di= distance, direction(angle) Measured from the last data or tentative point given.
The angle is measured irrespective of view rotation (0 is always to the
right, 90 is always up, etc.)

Distances, along the design plane axes, from the most recently entered tentative
point or data point.
dl= x, y,(z) - Measured along the x and y (and z) axis from the last data or tentative
point. The distances are measured along the axis, the result will look
different in views that are rotated differently.

Distances, along the view axes, from the most recently entered tentative point or
data point.
dx= x, y,(z) - Measured along the view axis from the last data or tentative point. The
distances are measured along the view. X will always be the left/right axis,
y will always be the up/down axis, and z will always be the in/out axis.

InRoads Key-Ins
Station key-in formats
When using English alignment station values conventionally there is a plus sign “+”
between the second and third digits. InRoads will allow you to input the station with or
without the plus sign in the MicroStation Key-in Browser and InRoads dialogs.
e.g.: 45+23.71 or 4523.71
so= station, and offset
This key-in identifies a point perpendicular to the active alignment at the given offset
distance. A negative offset distance is left of the alignment, a positive offset distance is
right of the alignment. (see note)
soe= station, offset, and elevation
This key-in identifies a point perpendicular to the active alignment at the given offset
distance and at a specific elevation. A negative offset distance is left of the alignment, a
positive offset distance is right of the alignment. (see note)
se= station, and elevation
This key-in identifies a point in a profile by the station and elevation. The station and
elevation specified must be within the limits of the profile window as displayed. If this
command does not work, snap to an element within the profile (like a grid line) then use
the key-in. (see note)
NOTE: "so=", “soe-“, and "se=" commands only work when InRoads and an .alg file is
loaded. If there’s no active alignment the commands have no point of reference.

AccuDraw Key-Ins
AccuDraw includes a wide variety of single and double character command directives
known as the shortcut key-ins. By pressing the appropriate key, you can direct
AccuDraw to perform a specific task.
When AccuDraw is activated and the menu receives
focus within MicroStation. A pop-up indicator confirms
single letter shortcuts below the focused input field.
This function not only confirms the key-ins and
illustrates which key is being pressed but also serves to
communicate that the shortcut is received via
AccuDraw's input fields.
Two letter shortcuts appear attached to the focused
input field, and confirm the action through the temporary
appearance of the shortcut dialog. The pop-down list
adjacent to the input field illustrates where the shortcut
comes from so that you can “follow the action.”
The following table lists keyboard shortcuts that affect AccuDraw's operation. These
shortcuts are effective only while the AccuDraw window has the focus. For a complete
list of AccuDraw Keyboard Shortcuts topic see the MicroStation help menu.

Positional Keyboard Navigation
Positional keyboard navigation is a technique that utilizes a position-mapped keyboard.
Position mapping is the mapping of keyboard zones to logical collections of controls in the user
interface.
MicroStation position maps your keyboard by default. The following figure shows the default
position mapping:
The blue keys are mapped to the icons in the Main Task Dialog Box.
(1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9), and (0)
The yellow keys are mapped to the icons in the Tasks Dialog Box.
(Q), (W), (E), (R), (T), (A), (S), (D), (F), (G), (Z), (X), (C), (V), and (B)
The green keys are mapped to the controls in the Tool Settings window.
(Y), (U), (I), (O), (P), (H), (J), (K), (L), (;), (N), (M), (,), (.), and (/)
(Enter):
Opens the Key-in window at the pointer location or if the window is already open,
puts focus within the browsable lists of keywords if they are visible.
(Spacebar): Moves focus to the AccuDraw window.
(Tab):
Change to the next element under the pointer.
(PgUp):
Next task
(PgDn):

Positional Keyboard Navigation
In Microsoft Windows and other graphical computer interfaces, the focus — sometimes called
the input focus or keyboard focus — refers to the window or control to which keyboard input is
directed.
The model is hierarchical with the top level called home.
In this model MicroStation follows your actions and attempts to move input focus for common
operations. For example, when you place a line the focus moves from home to the AccuDraw
window, then back to home.
When the focus is home, positional keyboard navigation can be used.
To move the focus home Press <Esc>.
A field in the status bar indicates the focus location:
• Home
• Tool Settings — the Tool Settings window has the focus.
• Key-in — the Key-in window has the focus.
• AccuDraw — the AccuDraw window has the focus.
• (No icon) — another window or dialog box has the focus
This positional keyboard navigation preference is
on by default. To disable positional keyboard
navigation, turn off the preference Use Position
Mapping in the Position Mapping category of the
Preferences dialog box.
(Workspace > preferences>Position Mapping).

Function Key Menu
A function key menu contains keyboard function key definitions, (assignments of
actions) to function keys. Function key definitions contain action strings that cause an
action to occur when you press the function keys.
The Function Keys dialog
(Workspace > Function
Keys) is used to modify
function key menus. You
can also define new
function keys and add them
to the menu.
To change or add a new function key:
Open the function key dialog.
Select the function key you would like by
turning on the <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and/or <Shift>
check boxes and choosing the desired function
key from the list box, by choosing from the
display window or by picking the desired
function keys with the keyboard.
In the Action text box, edit the
definition. The definition must
be specified as an action
string (key-in command).
Hint: Use the MicroStation
Search to locate key-in
commands.
Example: Change F1 to
rotate view element. Change
F2 to lock axis.

Text Styles
For ODOT Roadway Design use only
Text styles are named sets of text attributes, such as font, width, height, and color. They
allow you to place text within a model in a consistent and automated manner. Text
elements placed with a text style are automatically updated when the style is modified.
Standard Roadway Design Text Styles

Dimension Styles
For ODOT Roadway Design use only
A dimension style is a saved set of dimensioning settings. You can define dimension styles and
apply them to dimension elements during placement. Changes made to dimension styles are
dynamic and can be applied to all dimensions previously placed with that style in the active
DGN file.
Standard Roadway Dimension Styles
3.7.1
ODOT Roadway Design CADD Manual
April 1, 2015
How To Use Dimension Tools
Begin by setting the level “Dimension Line” active.
Go to the Dimensioning Tools Tool Bar and select the Dimension Linear command
Select a dimension style. The scale of the typical
border is the scale used for your dimensions style. If
you are using the prebuilt typical borders they are a
scale of 5 so the dimension style will be Typ Dim S5.
If there are no dimension styles in the list pick the
magnifying glass then in the Dimension Styles window
go to Style/Import/Typical/Open.
The Styles “Typ Dim S*” have full arrow heads.
The Styles “Typ Note S* *Line” have half arrow heads.
Snap to each edge of driving lane and then pull the dimension upward until it is the
correct height and accept.
If what you are dimensioning is one solid element you can use the
Dimension Element command pick once on the element, drag the dimension up and
accept.
To place the Driving Lane text underneath the dimension go to the Place Cell command
Change the scale to the same as the border (prebuilt typicals will be a 5). Pick the cell
called NoteDL and snap to the center of the driving lane dimension.
3.7.2
ODOT Roadway Design CADD Manual
April 1, 2015
How To Use Dimension Tools
The cells are already set to the correct spacing below the dimension line. Most of the
dimension text needed for a typical has been added to the cell library. See page 3 for a
full list of these cells. To place a dimension with a leader line and arrow use the Place
Note command.
In the Text Tool Bar
Pick the Place Note command
Change the text style to the correct size and the
dimension style to the correct scale and lines of
text you will be using.
You can either type the note in the Text Editor
box that appears or if you just want to place the
leader line and arrow leave the box blank.
Pick the point where the leader line needs to start.
Drag the line, pick an end point and accept.
If dimensions are already placed and the scale needs to be changed select all the
dimensions that need to be corrected. Select the Change Dimension command pick the
correct style and accept. This will change all dimensions that were selected to the new
dimension style.
