When adding a shape file to a design plan it is not referenced correctly.  The work around is to pick it up and physically move it.  Is there a more accurate way to fix this?  It seems to always be an issue with GIS and micro station.

GIS and shapefiles, use a projection file to give the file real world coordinates, does your microstation setup allow for the use of projections to define absolute coordinate space? or does it work in relative/arbitrary coordinate space?

I do not think microstatin setup will allow you to do this. If it does I'm not sure how to do it.

Are you importing a shapefile into Microstation? Or adding a shapefile and DGN to ArcMap?

If you know the coordinate system of both the DGN file and the shapefile, it should be possible to overlay one on the other. A little bit of detail and I may be able to help.
