Modify DGN Mapping Setup Dialog Box

Modify DGN Mapping Setup Dialog Box

Sets the properties for the selected mapping setup.

When you choose Continue in the New Mapping Setup dialog box, the Modify DGN Mapping
Setup dialog box is displayed. You define the properties for the new mapping setup
in this dialog box. The dialog box initially displays the properties of the mapping
setup that you selected.

List of Options

The Modify DGN Mapping Setup dialog box includes the following tabs:

Layer Tab

The corresponding cells are automatically filled with the default mapping. The properties
are added depending on which of the following mapping setups you are currently working
on. Whenever the target cell is blank (right-hand column), the default system mapping
is used. You can only make changes to the right-hand column of the Layer tab. The
left-hand column is not editable. Use the Add Properties buttons to add layers/levels
to the current mapping setup.

New mapping setup: If you have accessed the Modify DGN Mapping Setup dialog box by creating a new mapping
setup from the Import/Export DGN Settings dialog boxes, the rows are populated with
all defined levels in the imported DGN file or all defined layers in the current drawing
file.

Existing mapping setup: If you are editing an existing mapping setup (even if you are editing a setup other
than Standard from the Import (or Export) DGN Settings dialog box), the properties
listed in the mapping table are not derived from the imported DGN file or the exported
drawing file.

Linetype Tab

You can map linetypes and linestyles by editing the right-hand column of the Linetype
tab. Select a cell in the right-hand column, and click the drop-down list to select
a linetype or linestyle that the property in the left-hand column should be mapped
to. Linetypes can be loaded for use in the mapping setup by selecting Other from the
drop-down list. The left-hand column is not editable. Use the Add Properties buttons
to add linetypes/linestyles to the current mapping setup.

Export mapping setup: If you have accessed the Modify DGN Mapping Setups dialog box by creating a new setup
from the Export DGN Settings dialog box, the DWG column includes all defined linetypes
in the current drawing file. Whenever the target cell is blank (right-hand column),
we will use the default system mapping.

You can directly type DGN linestyle names in the cells in the right column. If unknown
linestyle names are added to the right column of the mapping table, they are ignored
and default to Continuous.

Import mapping setup: If you are in the Modify DGN Mapping Setup dialog box by creating a new setup from
the Import DGN Settings dialog box, the DGN column includes all defined DGN linestyles
in the imported DGN file, as well as the DGN seed file used when the DGN file was
created.

When remapping linetypes in the DWG column, only linetypes from the acad.lin and acadiso.lin
files are supported (depending on Units or Measurement type of file). Linetypes stored
in custom LIN files are not supported.

Lineweight Tab

A predefined set of lineweights is displayed which provides the best match between
lineweights used in DGN and DWG files. You can copy and paste single or multiple lineweights
using the right-click menu in the right-hand column. You can only make changes on
the right-hand column of the Lineweight tab. The left-hand column is not editable.

Color Tab

You can map color values between DGN to DWG files. By default the Color tab is blank
and the default color mapping is used. Color translations between DGN color values
is done to the closest AutoCAD color values and AutoCAD color values are mapped to
the closest DGN color values. The Color tab is the only tab that allows editing in
both columns. Values in the left-hand column must be unique. To remap colors, right-click
either column and select Add Color from the right-click menu.

DGN column: Selecting Add Color… from the right-click menu allows you to add a valid DGN color
value to the cell. Valid colors include 0-255, ByLevel and ByCell. The DWG column
is automatically populated with the equivalent RGB value. You can modify a DGN color
by double-clicking the cell and typing a different value.

DWG column: Selecting Add Color… from the right-click menu brings up the Select Color dialog
box. You can add ACI colors, true colors or color from a Color Book. The DGN column
is automatically populated with the DGN equivalent color value. You can modify a DWG
color by clicking the cell and selecting an option from the drop-down list. The drop-down
list displays the standard color list as well as a list of colors previously added
to the DWG column and the Select Color option.

NOTE: The AutoCAD Color Index Values are used to populate the DGN Column on DGNEXPORT only
because Microstation users can use their own color table values which map differently.
(On DGNIMPORT, you can read the DGN color index value directly from the file).

Add Properties From DGN File Button

Opens the Add Properties from DGN File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog
box). The level and linestyle properties from the chosen DGN file are added to the
DGN columns in the Modify DGN Mapping Setups dialog box table.

In Files of Type, the drop-down list includes MicroStation DGN (*.dgn) and All DGN
Files (*.*) to recognize DGN files that have other extensions.

NOTE: Only unique properties are added to the list in the Layer and Linetype tabs when
adding properties from files.

Add Properties From Drawing File Button

Opens the Add Properties from Drawing File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog
box). The layer and linetype properties from the chosen DWT/DWG/DWS files are added
to the DWG columns in the Modify DGN Mapping Setups dialog box table.

In Files of Type, the drop-down list includes the following:

  • Drawing template (*.dwt)
  • Drawing (*.dwg)
  • Standards (*.dws)

Setup Description

Specifies a mapping setup description. You can also edit the description for an existing
mapping setup.

NOTE: Only unique properties are added to the list in the Layer and Linetype tabs when
adding properties from files.
