Legend Options

The Legend in the Slide Interpret program serves the following purposes:

The Legend Options dialog, available in the View menu, or by right-clicking on the Legend, allows the user to customize various Legend Options. In addition, the Legend can be moved anywhere in the view, or re-sized, with the mouse. The options which are applicable to the Legend, are described below.

Show / Hide Legend

The display of the Legend can be toggled on or off independently in each view. This can be done through the Legend Options dialog. NOTE:

Number Format

The Number Format and number of Decimal Places selected in the Legend Options dialog is a global setting which applies to all views of all documents. Furthermore:

Legend Location

The Legend Location option is available in the Legend Options dialog, or by right-clicking on the Legend. By default, the Legend Location = Floating, which means that the Legend can be moved anywhere in the view, as described below. The Legend Location can also be fixed in any corner of the view, by selecting one of the four options.

Moving the Legend

If the Legend Location = Floating, it can be moved anywhere on the view by hovering over it with the mouse. When you see the four-arrow "move" icon, press and HOLD the left mouse button, and move the legend anywhere in the view.

Re-sizing the Legend

If the Legend Location = Floating, the Legend can be lengthened or shortened. If you hover the mouse over the MIDPOINT of the top or bottom of the Legend, you will see a double-arrow icon. Press and HOLD the left mouse button, and drag the mouse up or down, to re-size the legend.

Contour Options

The colours and intervals used in the Legend to display safety factor, can be customized in the Contour Options dialog. Contour Options is available in the View menu, the default right-click menu, or by right-clicking on the Legend.
