Legend Edit Panel

Legends display the range of values for the plot. Use the Legend Edit panel to change the number of colors in the legend or the colors of the legend. You can also reverse the colors used in the legend.

The Legend Edit panel should be used in conjunction with the Contour, Transient, Deformed, and Vector Plot panels. To enter this panel, first create a plot that uses a legend, then select the legend from the modeling window.

Color files are found in the Altair installation directory, in the colors folder. The color files are command files with color editing commands. Additional site-dependent color files can be added to the colors directory. A site-dependent file can provide better mapping of colors to different printers and plotters.
