ArcGIS v10.4.1 for Desktop: Can't Read Microstation Annotation Cells

Discussion created by DavidRenaud on Apr 18, 2017

Since updating from v10.3 our users no longer get point data for Microstation annotation cells.

 

Microstation has all kinds of cells: graphic, annotation, shared, blablabla - they are like AutoCAD blocks. Annotation cells scale themselves based on the drawing scale. The organization uses annotation cells for about 80% of all the cells. I could convert them, but this is not desirable.

 

Is there a way to have ArcGIS recognize annotation cells from Microstation?

 

Also, I hope I published this to the right location. I wanted it to be a general ArcGIS question, but do not see that Place or Group in the list it gave me.

 

Thanks.
