The Chart Legend for Version 7.0 (Portal)
About The Chart Legend
The Legend is designed to help your audience understand the meaning of the colors and shapes in your OnePager chart. The contents of the Legend are determined when the chart is created or updated. The Legend's title and the text names of Legend items can be edited in the Chart Editor. You can use the Legend to edit the colors, shape and other properties of task bar/milestone symbols in the chart. The Legend can be displayed in the chart or hidden. The Legend can be automatically or manually positioned in the graph or in the document area and can be visible or hidden in multi-page output media. The Conditional Formatting Rules capability changes the Legend based on the results of conditional formatting rule application.
