Ever have one of those super busy days where you're being pulled in multiple directions by umpteen different people for one thing or another? This happens to me almost daily. Eventually you manage to handle their issues and finally get back to your desk to get some real work done. So you wiggle your mouse to ditch the screen-saver and find MicroStation loaded with a DGN file already open. And you think to your self something like "What file am I in anyway?"
Unfortunately, if you're capable of solving other people's problems, they are going to come for you.
So, I can't help you with the interruptions. What I can offer is a MicroStation tidbit that might help you regain your orientation, once you're ready to get going on your own stuff.
By default, when MicroStation is open, you can see the name of the file you have open in the MicroStation title bar. For me, this isn't particularly helpful.
I work on a lot of files in a lot of different directories. From my experience, the names of some of the files in a typical project aren't going to give you any clarity. However, knowing the location of the file that's open can tell me everything I need to know. So, my tip is on how to display the full path and filename in the MicroStation title bar.
1. Load MicroStation and open any file.
