Adding a key or legend + -

You may want to begin by creating a main label that says “Key” or “Legend”.

    1. Click on the label “A” button located in the main tool pad in the left margin of the screen.
    2. Position your cursor in the white space and type.
    3. Move the label to the desired location by depressing and holding down the left click button on your mouse and moving your cursor. When the label is positioned in the desired location release the left click button. This is a typical drag and drop action used with many software products.

 

You will want to create a tag, such as the one representing alcohol use, but without a visible connected figure. To do this you must create a figure to which the tag is attached and then make the figure invisible.

      1. Create a figure and place it adjacent to where you would like the tag to appear in the legend.
      2. To create the tag, be sure the figure is highlighted then click on the desired tag in the property pad.
      3. To make the figure invisible, be sure the figure is highlighted on your white space and click the same figure in the property pad. The figure will remain outlined in gray but when you click away from the figure it will disappear.
      4. You fine tune the location by dragging and dropping the figure as described in the instructions for moving the label in 1.c. above.
      5. You can create and position labels describing each tag using the same procedure used to create the main label. (See 1. Above)

 

After you have positioned your main label and each tag with its descriptive label the way you want each one in relation to each other, you may want to reposition the entire legend for better presentation on your page.

    1. Simultaneously select every element in the legend by holding down the “shift” key on your keyboard and clicking on each element. Be sure to select the invisible figures. It is not necessary to click on the tags because they are associated with the invisible figures.
    2. Then place your cursor on any one of the highlighted elements and do a drag and drop of the entire legend.
