Label Legend text objects not showing

Recommended Posts



Can't figure out how to make text objects appear in label legends.  Field text objects are just fine.


EG: Text object in label legend 2d layout: "Voltage:"; field object that sits right beside it in same label legend 2d layout: "[Gets voltage from field value]"


I've tried having them classed the same and differently from the field text objects that are working just fine, but no joy.


Any suggestions?

This is not possible with the standard label legend, You would need to use the "Single Label" option. The traditional standard label option used the color, container shape or location to imply the label.

It's an option in the label legend manager. When this option is selected you will not be able to place the individual labels around the symbol, the labels selected will appear formatted more as a table that are moved as a single block of text with the filed name and value listed.
