TerraMatch Key-in Commands

Many tools in Terrasolid TerraMatch can be started by entering a key-in command in the MicroStation Key-in line. The Browse Key-in option of the Key-in line can be used to find out the syntax of a key-in command. To bring up the key-in dialog press enter in an active MicroStation view window.

If you select TMatch in the list at the lower right corner of the Browse Key-in dialog, the selection of commands is limited to TerraMatch commands only. There are four list fields that show available commands. Select the first word of a command in the left list. This adds the word to the command line and displays matching second words in the second-left list field. Select the second word of a command. This adds the word to the command line and displays any matching third words in the next list field. Continue until a command is complete.

If you know approximately, how a command looks like, you may start typing the command in the Key-in line. The software automatically completes words of the command, so you just type the first letter(s) and then, confirm the suggested word with <Space>.

Press <Enter> in order to execute a key-in command. This starts the corresponding tool or performs another action called by the command.

Key-in commands are handy because you can assign them to function keys in MicroStation. This can speed up some manual tasks significantly as you can call tools by pressing a key instead of mouse clicks. Especially tools with optional parameters in their key-in commands are well suited for speeding up manual work with function keys.
