How to display line elements in a legend

Recommended Posts

Hello there,


I'm hoping someone is able to help me figure out with making legends in VW 2015. As I'm a VW novice, I was happy to discover using Worksheets to make legends automatically as previous to discovering this, I was hand-building legends which are time consuming to manage. However, where it comes to lines (such as property lines, contour lines, utility lines etc.) I'm having trouble figuring out how to have VW just display a straight horizontal line as a legend item that's easy to see (like you would see on professionally drafted plans).


I've attached a sample file that contains a worksheet that serves as a legend. The legend is on the left of the drawing on Sheet 01 Finalized Concept Design. Does anyone have any advice on how to make the line legend elements appear as simply straight horizontal lines (as opposed to the random lines that are generated by VW)?


Thanks so much in advance
