correct labels on color fill table legend

Recommended Posts

When using the Palette button to create a color fill table, the minimum of a class is set equal to the maximum of the class that precedes it. How are nodes that equal these breakpoint values classified? Do they end up in the first class or second class?

Is there a way to adjust text on associated legends using a > or < symbol to correctly indicate to which class the breakpoint values belong?

for example when this is entered in a color fill table

min max

class A 10 20

Class B 20 30

Does this mean

Class A 10-20

Class B >20 - 30

or

Class A 10 - <20

Class B 20 - <30

thanks,

Lara

Hi Lara,

Values that are equal to the bin break values are grouped in the second grouping (your second example below).

Class A 10 - <20

Class B 20 - <30

For the legend, you can create a custom Color Index (under Misc Tables in the project manager) which is saved as a "tab" file.

Then insert that legend in your 2D diagram using the Draw | Insert | Index Legend menu option. Set the type to a Color Legend and browse for the TAB file.

In the example shown here, the lower legend is the automatic legend, and the upper one is the custom Index Legend.

Thanks Molly for explaining the custom Color Index - this works.

I'd like to add to the next-release wish-list the request that the automatically generated default index for palette color fill tables be accurately labeled so that users do not need to go through the above tasks.

thanks

Lara
