Adding Fills to a Legend





To add a fill to a legend:

Right click the legend and choose Append Fill Item to Legend.

From the Fill Type dialog, select a fill and a color (the color only applies to solid and pattern fills) then choose OK.

TPC adds a legend item that includes a filled rectangle and the name of the fill. You can edit the fill name, replacing it with whatever text is appropriate for your drawing.

Making the Fill Symbol Bigger

If the rectangle used to display the fill is not large enough to display the fill properly:

Right click the legend and choose Properties.

Increase the Symbol Width Factor and choose OK.

This creates more room for the fill rectangle. It can also improve any line types that are displayed in the legend.
