AutoTransform is a boolean values that indicates whether internal setings should be transformed along with the elements's geometry, when a transform is applied via ITransform2D. For instance, if I have a point element and I rotate it around a central location (the anchor point of the rotation being different from the point element iself), then the AutoTransform property is used to determine whether the orientation of the symbol associated to the element should also be rotated by the same amount.
