Sizing legend

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My diagrams look great on the screen but when I try to print to paper or save in a printable file format (e.g. pdf) the legend box does not scale correctly (see attachment). The font of the text is correct but the box is so huge it does not fit on screen. I want to get the images in a format that is easily viewable and printable by people who don't have GWB. Any suggestions?Eh pH at 10-6 activity mine water.pdf

Thanks,

Scott

Ok, an update, I'm part way there. If I "save as" a pdf (rather than using a pdf writer as printer) then the scaling matches what is on the screen and I can then print. But the box for the legend is not sized properly for the legend text - legend extends out side of box and is partially obscured by line. So questions:

1) is there a way to size box independent of text?

2) can the line be turned off?

3) Is there a limit to number of text characters for legend and so do I have to shorten my labels?

Hi Scott:

There are limited options for graphical editing in GWB because we've always given priority to adding greater modeling functionality over making GWB a graphing/plotting package (like SigmaPlot, DeltaGraph or even Excel). What I recommend you do is to save your image as an editable vector file (Adobe Illustrator - .ai format, EPS, or MicroSoft .emf format) and make your final image modifications in an application more suited to that task.

I hope that helps,
