Legends are a standard inclusion on any civil/survey drawing.  A table to describe the graphic symbols and even linetypes are needed.  The question is when these table are generated and how.  Some users wait until the project is nearly complete then manually draw the tables.  Revisions may introduce new symbols that can’t be forgotten.  There has to be a better way.

These two new tools create (and update) a symbol and linetype legend in the drawing, reflecting those objects actually in use in the drawing.  That way it can be included in the drawing at the very beginning and automatically grows as the project progresses.

The Symbol Legend can contain block inserts in use or symbols referenced by CogoPoint objects.  Equally important, to avoid consuming space it does not include symbols defined in the drawing but not actually inserted.

The Linetype Legend works the same way, and displays only linetypes in use.

This tool is available in:
