Notes

The legend classes conform to the controls specified in the window options panel (PlotCtrls> Window Controls> Window Options). In many instances, the legend controls specified with the /PLOPTS command will take precedence and override /UDOC specifications. For instance:

/PLOPTS,LEG1,OFF will disable the TYPE, TYP2, INUM, and MISC classes, regardless of the /UDOC settings.

/PLOPTS,LEG2,OFF will disable the VIEW class, regardless of the /UDOC settings.

/PLOPTS,LEG3,OFF will disable the PSTA class, regardless of the /UDOC settings.

All items in a class are listed with the same X coordinate (except for contours). The contents of the text classes are dumped onto the display window from top to bottom, in order of class importance.

The font specification for text items that are included in the user- specified legends are controlled with the /DEVICE command (PlotCtrls> Font Controls> Anno/Graph Font).

The floating point values for the data presented in the legend(s) are controlled by the /GFORMAT command.
