How to export selected members from a DGN file to DWG? 

Steps to Resolve in CONNECT Edition

1. Select the members to be exported:

3. "Save as DWG/DXF Options" dialogue box appears. Go to the "Filter" Tab. From the "Geometry" dropdown menu select "Selection Set"

Then select "Options" and follow the steps as mentioned above.
