Work with legends

A legend is a key for the conventions that are used on your chart. You can create a legend to explain the different entity types, link types, attribute classes, line properties, fonts, and time zones on your chart.

You can specify the shape of the legend and place it at a specific location on your chart.

A legend can have a title, chart summary information, and legend entries for the following items:

  • Attribute symbols
  • Entity icons (such as Male and Female.)
  • Lines (for items such as event frames, theme lines, boxes, circles, and text blocks.)
  • Fonts (describing the use of fonts on your chart)
  • Links
  • Time zones
  • Icon frames

You can either populate the legend from the items on your chart, or create a blank legend and populate it manually.
