Hi, I am trying to convert DGN to SHP.
DGN is composed by ANNOTATION (text with coordinates AND viewing angle).
I can do this:

  ogr2ogr -nlt POINT -skipfailures -f "ESRI Shapefile"  dir S:\Luca\TXTV7.dgn

but the new shp does not have any information about angles:

#> ogrinfo -summary S:\Luca\TXTV7.dgn elements

INFO: Open of `S:\Luca\TXTV7.dgn'
using driver `DGN' successful.

any idea?
