To Copy a Library Text Style into the Active File

  1. Make sure that the MS_DGNLIBLIST_TEXTSTYLES configuration variable points to the text style (DGN) library.

    If necessary, close and reopen the product to set the variable.

  2. In the Text Styles dialog, select a library text style library (gray book icon) from the list box.

    Library text styles can also be selected in the tool settings dialogs of the Place Text, Edit Text, and Place Note tools, which also copies the library text style locally.

  3. Do one of the following:

    Select Style > Save to save the style.


    From the icon bar, click Save.

    The style has now been copied locally, and a blue delta icon appears next to the style indicating that the local copy does not match the library copy.

    Note: Saving a library style does not automatically activate it. Alternately, you can simply activate a library text style, which will have it copied locally and activated in one operation.
