Creating Legends


Any number of legends may be created on your drawing, each with completely different appearance settings in Matrix or BOM format, and each associated with the same or different selections of blocks, balloons and connections.

Creating a Legend

Select the CREATELEGEND tool and pick the blocks, balloons and connections you wish to include.

Use the "Previous" method of selection along with AutoCAD's FILTER command for selecting entities according to any criteria.

The line symbol for connections is in the color and line type of the parent connection.

Symbols and new connections can be dragged from any legend (See Inserting Symbols).

Matrix Format

A quantity and attribute can also be displayed, and the grid can be turned off if desired. Any number of columns can be chosen for the matrix size.
