Working with Legends

The legend is important if you will be sending your printed Gantt chart to someone who does not understand the coloring or shading you use for different kinds of tasks. If you are not used to what the blue and red bars means, a Gantt chart can quickly become quite confusing. This section shows you how to work with the legend to make sure your users have the info they need when looking at your printed views.

Controlling Legend Placement and Formatting

Click the File, Page Setup menu item.

Select the Legend tab.

In the Legend On section, select Every Page if you want a legend to be displayed on the bottom of each page in your printed view.

Select Legend Page if you want a single page at the end of the report to contain the legend.

Select None if you don't want a legend displayed.

Click the Legend Labels button to define the text style (font, size, color, and so on) of the legend labels.

Click Print Preview to see the effects of your changes.
