Symbols are grouped by symbolname, code, description #1 and description #2, and is presented in a tree-list with coloured nodes. Select the elements to be included in the legend and click OK. Then select the insertion point of the Symbol Legend.


The Nodes in the tree-list can be red, yellow or green. You can include or exclude individual elements by clicking the nodes so that the colour changes.

  • Red = The Symbol is excluded from the legend

This is where you define the size (length and height) for the 'frames' surronding each symbol in the legend. You also define the offset distance between each frame. The frame is not draw but is only used for defining the distances between symbols.


Define the font end size for text in the legend.
