Show or Hide a Legend

  

Once a 2-D plot is created, you can display or hide the legend for that particular plot.

1. 

Click the plot to select it.

2. 

From the Plot menu, select Legend.

  

Alternatively, right-click the plot to activate the context-sensitive menu.

3. 

Select or clear the Show Legend selection. A check mark beside Show Legend indicates that a legend is displayed for the plot. If there is no check mark, a legend is not displayed.

Legend Size

  

Legends vary in size, depending on the number of curves in the plot. There is a limit on the amount of space available for a plot legend. Therefore, if there are too many entries in the legend, some may not be displayed.

Session and Global Settings

  

For information on changing whether all 2-D plots are to be created with a displayed legend, see the Display tab of the Options Dialog.
