Provides information about frames around objects, such as raster images or drawings from other applications.

Type

Displays the category of the selected element. You cannot edit the type.

Sheet

Displays the name of the drawing sheet that contains the selected element. You cannot edit the sheet.

Name

Specifies the name for the selected element. This field is user-defined. The name that is entered in this field is also displayed in the Display Manager (Sheet tab).

Layers

Sets the layer that contains the selected element.

Origin

Specifies the coordinates, or location, of an element along the X and Y-axes.

Behavior

Specifies how the SmartFrame reacts to changes made within its source. For example, if Fit Frame to Reference is selected and the size of the frame contents is expanded, the SmartFrame will also resize and attempt to encompass all the data. Conversely, if you resize the SmartFrame, the data inside is scaled so that it continues to fit within the frame. If Frame Fixed is selected, the SmartFrame does not react to changes made within its source, and resizing the frame will not affect the scale factor of the frame contents; consequently, the frame remains fixed in its original size and position.

Height

Displays the height of the selected SmartFrame. The value in this field is for display purposes only.

Width

Displays the height of the selected SmartFrame. The value in this field is for display purposes only.

Scale (1:1)

Sets the scale to a 1:1 ratio. As a result, the representation of the objects in the SmartFrame is the same size as the real-world object being described.

Select scale

Sets the scale to a standard ratio. The specified ratio defines the size of the SmartFrame in relation to the size of the real-world object.

Custom

Defines a custom or scale ratio.

Use photographic style scale

Controls how paper-based items are scaled. When this option is enabled (and if the Display as Printed option on the View Tab of the Options dialog box is also enabled), text and geometry widths scale up. When this option is disabled, text and geometry widths stay true to size (even if Display as Printed is enabled).

Link

Determines the way that the object links with a SmartFrame. This option is available only for linked objects.

As Part of the Model (Public)

Allows the linked object to publicly appear in any document that links to the current document. Therefore, if you link an object to the current drawing and then link to the current drawing from another document, the current drawing and the linked object appear in the other document. For example, this setting is useful if you link comments from a Word document to the current drawing and you want other documents to appear in the current drawing with the comments.

As Reference Only (Private)

Restricts the linked object from being displayed in any document that links to the current document. If the current drawing is linked to another document, the linked object does not appear in the other document. For example, this setting could be useful if you want to link comments from a Word document to the current drawing and you want other documents to display the drawing, but not the comments.
