How to open MicroStation Powerdraft entering into a new untitled dgn file


MicroStation Powerdraft offers the possibility of starting creating a new untitled design file, without having to browse or manually create a new blank file.

Steps to Accomplish


  1. Open the "Workspace->Preferences->Operation" dialog
  2.  Tick the "Enter into Untitled Design" option

  3. Click "Ok" to return to the application


NOTE: When starting Powerdraft creating a new untitled drawing it is not possible to select User, Project or Interface and the last ones manually selected or the ones set by default will be used.

It is also worth noting that due to changes with the operation of the File Open or Work Session in MicroStation or PowerDraft CONNECT Edition that the option to "Enter into Untitled Design" is no longer available in the Workspace Preferences.
