Grapher supports several different types of legends designed to provide details about each plot or graph in your project. The type of legend needed depends on what information needs to be defined and the type of graph or plot you're working with.
|Legend||Displays information about each plot in one graph (including the slices in pie or doughnut charts)
|Multi-graph Legend||Displays information about all plots in all graphs on one page|
|Plot Legend||Displays information about the classes in class plots (2D, XYZ, polar, ternary, piper), bubble size and color in bubble plots, or bins in wind charts
|Color Table Legend||Displays information about fill colors defined in a color table|
|Symbol Table Legend||Displays information about symbols defined in a symbol table|
|Color Scale||Displays the values associated with colors applied via a colormap|
To add a legend to your graph:
- Click on the Graph or any plot in the graph to select it.
- Click the Graph Tools | Add to Graph | Legend command. A default legend displaying all plots is added to the graph.
