How to hide the frame of a PDF underlay?

A - answer The display of frames in PDF underlays is controlled by two variables - PDFFRAME and FRAME. The FRAME setting overrides the individual setting of PDFFRAME and other "frame" variables.

Values of FRAME:

  • 0 - The frame is not visible and it is not plotted
  • 1 - Displays the frame and allows it to be plotted
  • 2 - Displays the frame but keeps it from being plotted
  • 3 - The individual setting varies for all underlays in the current drawing (external references, images, and DWF, DWFx, PDF, and DGN underlays all have different frame settings).
