But there are a few manipulations…that only the fence command can do…such as clipping, fence export, et cetera.…Many legacy users in MicroStation…still use the fence tool more than the selection tool…so I feel it is important that you understand both tools…so that you can make an informed decision…on which one you prefer to use.…First, a little history.…The fence tool was available years…before the selection tool was added to MicroStation.…I also think it's important for you to understand…the difference between the fence in AutoCAD…and the fence in MicroStation.…
