Map frame

A map frame of BBSoft® creates a frame around your drawing or only around a section of it with desired size and adjustment. As a consequence of that the compilation of maps is speeded up, because the map frame manages all map formats and layouts centrally.

Further features:

  • selection of various north arrows and title blocks
  • another symbol, e.g. a QR-code, can be integrated into your map frame additionally to north arrow and title block
  • the creation of an individual title block (with the respective company logo) is without any problems possible for a consistent layout
  • the title block can be positioned arbitrarily and can be designed in the presentation, the text content and the size
  • the north arrow can be set centrally in the map frame
  • the format of the map can be adjusted on usual or on free definable formats
  • via an own presentation map, it is possible to define and edit the line types for the paper- and model space
  • all texts along the edge can be adjusted in position and presentation, inclusive the folding mark
  • maps with different output scales can be combinded with each other
  • a second viewport can be displayed additionally, also with a different scale
  • the settings of a map frame can be exported in a .txt-file (this file can be used for the import too)
  • map frames can be arranged automatically along a defined alignment, inclusive the consideration of the overlaps (map frame group)
  • the scale of the plot measurement can be defined precisely and can be adjusted to the paper format
  • it is possible to mark the presentation area in the model area in order to see exactly which part is displayed in the map frame
  • coordinate inscriptions at the edge of a section can be configured according to appearance and height of texts
  • optional possibility for the creation/insertion of grid squares
  • selection, if map frame groups should be displayed space-saving in one layout or individually in separate layouts
  • for the creation of a map frame group a sewer harness can be used also
  • a map frame group can be rotated around 180°, so that the viewing direction is not adjusted mandatory to the north
  • a map frame can be copied into an existing or an completely new layout
  • a CSV-export exists, which exports the object-ID, the name of the layout, the left bottom corner as insertion point and the angle
