Layout Frames and Legend

    Posted 30 days ago
    ​Hi I am using 64 Bit MapInfo Pro version 17.

    How do I insert a Legend into a new Frame on my Layout window? Whenever I insert a Legend into a Frame onto the Layout window it doesn't go inside the Frame but instead goes on the grey area next to the Layout window therefore I have to drag it onto my Layout window which is v annoying and time consuming. How do I make the Legend go directly into a Frame on the Layout window?

    Hi Richard,

    You can do this by creating a New Frame in the Layout window and then inserting a Legend into it. To enable the Legend icon, there should be  a Map on the Layout.

    1. Choose Layout ribbon > Insert section > Frame > New Frame
    2. Click on  Legend to choose the layer for which the Legend has to be created

    This will insert the Legend window in the Frame.

    When you bring in a Map layer with a Legend already created, it can go in the grey area because of a different zoom level.
