Problem

How can a cell be placed in a *.dgn file with Microstation?

Solution

You need to click on cell icon: Place Active Cell

V8i:

Connect Edition

Then in the Place Active Cell window click on the dots:

the Cell Library windows open. From here you are able to choose your libraries:

File>Attach file or File>Attach folder

It is also possible from here to create a new cell. Please have a look at this second wiki article: https://bentleysystems.service-now.com/community?id=kb_article_view&sysparm_article=KB0108276
