Microstation VBA Beginners Guide

Using Microstation V8i (v8.11), I got started from scratch and had the hardest time figuring out how to do the most basic operations of creating a basic 2D drawing (a cross-section of a concrete column). This Wiki documents how to use Microstation VBA, assuming you already know how to make a simple VBA user form. I have disabled edits from non-users and I have even disabled allowing people to sign up. If you really want to contribute content, please e-mail me at: brted atsymbol yahoo period com.

I'm going to skip getting started in the project manager and VBA editor because that is actually pretty well documented.
