Attach DWF Underlay Dialog Box

Attach DWF Underlay Dialog Box

Sets options such as rotation and scale when you attach a DWF underlay.

Names, locates, and defines the insertion point, scale, and rotation of attached
DWF or DWFx underlays.

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Name

Identifies the DWF or DWFx file you have selected to attach.

Browse

Opens the Select Reference File dialog (a standard file selection dialog box).

Select one of more sheets from the DWF file

Displays all of the sheets that are found in the DWF file. If the DWF file only contains
a single sheet, that sheet is listed. You can select multiple sheets by holding the
Shift key or the Ctrl key while selecting the sheets to attach. If you hover over
the preview, the file name displays.

Path Type

Select the full (absolute) path, the relative path to the DWF file, or No Path, the
name of the DWF file (the DWF file must be located in the same folder as the current
drawing file).

NOTE: The Path Type group is disabled when you’re attaching a DWF or DWFx file that is
stored on the AutoCAD Vault client server. This information is automatically entered
by the Vault. (The Vault is not available for AutoCAD LT.)

Insertion Point

Specifies the insertion point for the selected DWF file. Specify On-Screen is the
default. The default insertion point is 0,0,0.

Specify On-Screen

Directs input at the Command prompt or the pointing device. If Specify On-Screen is
cleared, enter the insertion point in X, Y, and Z.

Scale

Specifies the scale factor of the selected DWF underlay.

If INSUNITS is set to “unitlessâ€‌ or if the underlay does not contain resolution information,
the scale factor becomes the underlay width in AutoCAD units. If INSUNITS has a value
such as millimeters, centimeters, inches, or feet, and the underlay has resolution
information, the scale factor is applied after the true width of the underlay in AutoCAD
units is determined.

Specify On-screen

Allows you to input at the Command prompt or the pointing device. If Specify On-Screen
is cleared, enter a value for the scale factor. The default scale factor is 1.

Scale Factor Field

Enter a value for the scale factor. The default scale factor is 1.

Rotation

Specifies the rotation angle of the selected DWF underlay.

Specify on-screen

If Specify On-Screen is selected, you may wait until you exit the dialog box to rotate
the object with your pointing device or enter a rotation angle value at the Command
prompt.

Angle

If Specify On-Screen is cleared, enter the rotation angle value in the dialog box.
The default rotation angle is 0.

Show Details

Displays the DWF file path.

Found In

Displays the path where the DWF file is located.

Saved Path

Displays the path that is saved with the drawing when the DWF file is attached. The
path is dependent upon the Path Type setting.
