The Ohio Department of Transportation is currently migrating its CADD software from Bentley Systems V8i versions to Bentley Systems CONNECT Edition platform (this includes the transition from GEOPAK to s Designer). One of the main drivers of this transition is due to Bentley Systems discontinuing support for its V8i products on January 1st, 2021.
Please see the Transition Plan on ODOT’s Office of CADD & Mapping Services website at:

 MicroStation Text to Node Files

MicroStation Text to Node Files
The MDL application can be used to combine multiple individual lines of text into a text node in MicroStation.  This could be used to combine the individual lines of text of rock descriptions when included on boring graphics.  As a text node you can select the text and use the “handles” to resize (word wrap) the length of the text node.
