Ribbon Search

Ribbon search is an easier way to find tools or dialogs across multiple tabs and workflows of the ribbon. In the Search Ribbon (F4) field on the top-right corner of the ribbon, enter the partial or full name of the tool or dialog and you will get a list of results with the given name in a window below the Search field. The search results are categorized by Ribbon, Backstage, and Quick Access Toolbar.
Hovering the pointer on any of the tools expands the details of the tool to list the different access points of the tool in the ribbon.

Clicking on the access point listed in the search result navigates the ribbon to the particular tab.

Clicking the desired search result activates the tool. If a tool is activated from the search result, MicroStation stores this use and next time the tool is listed in the Most Recently Used category in the search result.
You can also view the most recently used tools from the search by clicking the down arrow next to the browse icon.
Clicking Show Details link at the bottom of the search results window, displays the details of each search result.
