How To: Manipulate a legend frame's components
A legend frame in an ArcView layout is a group of graphic elements. Grouped graphics can not be edited. You must simplify the group in order to edit the individual elements.
- Open the layout with the legend you wish to edit.
- Select the legend frame.
- Click Graphics > Simplify.
The legend will no longer reflect changes made in the view.
- Select the element you wish to change and make the edits.
Make creative use of the group and un-group functions to keep or delete parts of the legend. You may use the Align option under the Graphics menu if some of the legend components become misaligned during editing.
