Cannot type/place certain single characters when using "key-in" editor style.


Some single letters correspond to actual commands within MicroStation, these characters are parsed for the actual command.

Here are some examples:
e \ / d j ; ! z b n $

-Use (`) or (t) in front of the character to place these characters (recommended).
-Do not use "key-in" text editor style.
-Key-in: SET PARSEALL OFF (not recommended - See notes).

-If Parseall is off, all key-in commands (inside of macros, Fkeys and tools) will just populate within the key-in dialog while it is in text mode.
