how to create a legend in the layout?

Recommended Posts

I apologize for posting so much,however these are simply questions I could not find the anwer to via google, or searching on the forum.

 

Is there a way to create a legend in the layouts automatically that is auto populated, just like the schedules?

 

I found this one below in a CA sample plan...

Nope -- not with Symbols.

 

You can create a schedule and fill it in via macros using the standard text box and tab alignment -- somewhat. But since Chief does not recognize tabs in macros --- mostly no. Does work well with all text.

 

Most accomplish the above via a combination of symbols, box outlines, and text. -- lots of work. Or do it in Excel and import as a image or meta file.

you can also make one using the cad blocks for electrical symbols in the plan.

Once you've created it in your Layout Template - or have stored it in your library - you never have to make it again.

 

IOW, it's not automatic until you make it yourself.

Or I can just copy & paste the one that was in the Layout sample from CA!!

 

I guess I was just expecting too much from this software!

 

anyways thanks for the suggestions people. :)
