View g Legend

This will produce a legend of the graph on the graph itself. Every visible data set will end up in the legend.


The text of every line will initially be identical to the corresponding names on the name panel. You can edit the individual lines by double-clicking on them.

You can move the legend around by pressing the ctrl-key and dragging the legend over the graph.

Right-clicking on the legend will bring up the legend menu:

g Text Font

If the graph window is sized, the legend text will not be scaled to it. This will maintain readability even when the graph window is made very small. If you want to change the size of the text you can do so by selecting the appropriate font and font size here.

g Text Color

By default, all text lines will be black. You can change this to the plot color of the corresponding data set, or define your own color by choosing 'Custom'.

Sample plots

Sample plots are the small plots to the left of the legend text, that show the format of the data set the text belongs to. You can hide these sample plots. If you do so, the legend text lines will automatically get the same color as the data set they belong to, otherwise it wouldn't be clear which line belongs to which plot. If you still want all the lines to have the same color, you can change this with the Text Color menu option above.

g Border

Shows or hides a border around the legend. Note that the legend area becomes a bit larger if a border is drawn.

  g Background color

By default the background color of the legend will be transparent. You can change it with this menu option.

  g Hide legend

Deletes the legend from the graph, but the legend will stay in memory including any text you have edited. If you choose View g Legend again, the legend will come up just as it was. 

g Discard legend

Deletes the legend completely. If you choose View g Legend again, the legend will be rebuilt from scratch.
