Graph Legend

A graph legend contains information about the lines, fills, and symbols used in the plot(s) for a single graph. If you wish to include information from multiple graphs in a single legend, use the Multi-Graph Legend. If you wish to include specific information from a single plot, use the Plot Legend.

Creating a New Legend

  1. Select any part of the graph (axis, plot, fit, or the entire graph).
  2. Click the Graph Tools | Add to Graph | Legend command, or right-click and select Add Legend.

Editing an Existing Legend

To change the features of a legend, including the plots displayed in the legend, open the legend properties by selecting the legend and editing the properties in the Property Manager.

The legend properties contain the following sections in the Property Manager:






Detaching Legends

If you need to copy, edit, or add additional information to a legend, such as company information, the legend can be detached from the graph. Legends edited in this manner are no longer attached to the graph, so make sure no additional changes are necessary before proceeding with this process. When detaching a bubble, wind, or class legend, the wind or class legend is hidden, and the legend is recreated with drawn objects. When detaching other legends, the original legend is removed.
