|Input File||Shows the filename and other information — Author, Organization, Creator, Measuring System, Drafting Standard, IGES Version, Creation Date, Number of Entities, and Time — in the IGES file's global data section.|
|Status||During the conversion, displays messages about its progress, which are also saved in the Log file.|
|File > Settings File > Attach|| Opens the Settings File dialog, which is used to
attach an import
Note: The controls are analogous to those in the Open dialog.
|File > Settings File > Save||Saves the import settings in the attached import settings file.|
|File > Settings File > Save As|| Opens the Save Settings File dialog, which is used
to save the import settings in a new import
Note: The controls are analogous to those in the Save As dialog.
|File > Log File|| Opens the Log File dialog, which is used to specify
an alternate Log file.
Note: The controls are analogous to those in the Save As dialog ( ).
|Settings > General||Opens the IGES Import Settings dialog, which is used to set general IGES import settings.|
|Settings > Solid Modeling Specific Options||Opens the Solids Import Settings dialog, which is used to set IGES import settings related to solid modeling.|
|Settings > Cell Names|| Opens the
(IGES Import) Cell Names dialog, which
can be used to customize how IGES

|Settings > Exclude IGES Entities|| Opens the
(IGES Import) Exclude IGES Entities
dialog, which is used to exclude types of IGES entities — that is, omit
them from the DGN file.
By default, all entities are included. A warning is inserted in the Log file each time an entity is omitted.
|Settings > Exclude uStn Elements||Opens the Exclude MicroStation Elements dialog, which is used to exclude types of MicroStation elements — that is, translate them to a different type of element(s). Examples are stroking a curved element into a line string or breaking up (dropping) a complex element into its components — done usually because an application does not recognize that particular type of element.|

|Settings > Levels|
|Settings > Line Styles||Opens the (IGES Import) Line Styles dialog, which can be used to set how an IGES line font pattern(s) are converted to Standard line styles . Standard line styles are those numbered 0-7. The option menus let you choose a line style to which to convert each line font pattern.|
