The Object Options Dialog Box

The Object Options dialog box lets you change how the system displays information about objects. Object options apply in detail and overview mode for the active view window. Changes you make apply only to the current work session.

However, you can save changes for future work sessions, using the Save Options feature. If you access the Object Options dialog box through the Print dialog box (not through the menu), the settings you enter apply to the print request only.

Text Alignment

Use this option to change the alignment of the text that identifies objects. To do so, set the appropriate indicator.

Draw

Use this option to determine which shapes the system uses to represent objects. To do so, set the appropriate indicator.

Shadow - The system shades the edge of a shape to create a three dimensional effect.

Solid - The system fills the shape with color.

Line Wrap - The system wraps the text. This option is active only in overview mode.

Font

Use this option to change the size of the object name text on screen. The system uses the selected font in any printouts you request.

Outer Frame and Inner Frame

The shape used to represent an object consists of two frames, an outer frame and an inner frame. The outer frame is the outline of the shape itself.

The inner frame is the edge of the text box, which contains the text that describes the object. The shapes that make up a hierarchical structure are displayed on a grid. (The grid can be visible or hidden.) Each cell in the grid contains one object.

Outer Frame

Use this option to change the size of a shape in relation to the size of the grid cell which contains the object. Use the top arrow to set the width. The lower arrow controls the height.

To increase the space between objects, decrease the vertical size of the outer frame. The system can display more of the text which describes the relationship between the objects.

Inner Frame

Use this setting to control the size of the text box relative to the size of the object (The size of the object is determined by the Outer frame setting). The top arrows control horizontal size, and the bottom arrows control vertical size. To enter a size, select the arrows.

Font Size

The use of this field depends on how you access the Object Options dialog box. This field is for display only. However, if you access this dialog box through the Print dialog box, you can change the font size for a printout. To choose a size, select the arrows.
