MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition Help

To Paste a Bitmapped Graphic in the Model

  1. From any application, copy the image to the Clipboard.
  2. Go back to MicroStation PowerDraft.
  3. Open the Paste Special dialog (Drawing > Home > Selection > Paste split button).
  4. In the Paste Special dialog, select the bitmapped graphic format and then click Paste.

    An outline of the image dynamically displays.

  5. To place the image in the model, enter a data point.
    Note: In 3D DGN files, pasted bitmaps are easiest to handle if they are pasted in a Top view. If you place bitmaps in a view other than a Top view, the image handles work properly, but they may appear skewed.
    Note: The image is saved in the DGN file as a raster element type 87/88.
