Hi all,

I am interested in creating a legend for the multiple ranges I have on my graph. I had a look at the manual and there is not a clear way to provide this.

The reason for this is the colours I have used in the ranges represent a variable in the data, which is easier to present in a legend.

Thanks,

Satkinson

If you use the Custom Legend command you can add a color tile. The standard Legend command picks things up automatically from the commands, but the Custom Legend (Command menu) allows you more customization but requires more input.

At the moment you have to pick the same color as the range command. One way to do that is to use the colors specified in the style settings (top entry) and then the Range command and the Custom Legend command can point to the same color tile. Then when you change the color, both entries change.
