How do I assign a function key in to open InRoads in MicroStation?


To assign a Function Key to open InRoads, please follow these steps:

  1. In the MicroStation menu, go to Workspace > Function Keys.
  2. Highlight the key you wish to assign a value to.
  3. Key in “mdl l” and then the path to the ma in the Action field.
    1. On a 64bit machine, it would be mdl l "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\InRoads Group V8.11\bin\".
    2. On a 32bit machine, it would be mdl l "C:\Program Files\Bentley\InRoads Group V8.11\bin\".

Please note that these are the default locations of the ma, if you have installed InRoads in a different directory, you will need to use that path to the ma – just search for “”.  Also, you need the quotation marks in the command line for it to load.
