Global File Changer Will Make You Look Like a Super Hero

Imagine walking into work one day, firing up your desktop and facing hundreds of files containing text that needs changing. For example, you need to replace every instance of “Pennsylvania Avenue” with “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue”.

Doing them one at a time is not an option (would take weeks).

Time to panic?

Not at all.

Global File Changer™ will make global changes to multiple design files with a few simple key strokes. It will execute almost any imaginable task on multiple design files, from counting cells in design files to exceptional control over text and cell replacement.


How is Global File Changer Going to Help You?

Global File Changer will:

  • Modify or report automatically on your design file settings, like global origin, view attributes, color table, working resolution — and more — on a whole set of project design files.
  • Move elements from old level names or numbers to new levels throughout a whole set of design files.
  • Do any number of text search and replace combinations — on any number of files — using wildcards or regular expressions.
  • Automatically flatten elements on their Z axis or report on the Z values of elements in your files.
  • Easily convert files from 2D to 3D or vice versa.
  • Modify the properties of text elements in multiple DGN files.
  • Replace or scale cells in multiple DGN files.
  • Run a series of key-ins on only the elements you want to in multiple DGN files.
  • Make the same type of change to a specific set of elements in a whole set of design files.
  • Merge design files automatically.
  • Move the Global Origin to the center of displayed elements.
  • Get a count of each of the cells in your DGNs.

Custom Features Accomplish Tasks Beyond Key-in Scripts

Global File Changer is a powerful batch file processor that can execute MicroStation key-in commands on any number of DGN files. It can help you standardize your views, replace old cells with a revised version or update your text to meet the new standards a customer has ordered at the last minute. Global File Changer has a robust and growing set of custom features that accomplish tasks that just would not be possible with key-in commands alone.

Powerful Element Selection Utility

Global File Changer also has its own potent element selection utility which gives you the capability to easily isolate very precise selection sets, assign them names and then easily utilize those named selection sets to make the changes you want, in all your project files, to just those selected elements. Available for OpenRoads and MicroStation. The MicroStation V8 version includes ProjectWise support.
