Software Forms > FEM Viewer > Quick Reference > Show Legend
The Show Legend button is used to turn on or off the legend which is displayed on the right margin. The legend displays integer and real numbers or character text data.
- The brackets enclosing the item indicate which item is active in the legend.
- You may place your cursor in the legend and quickly move it up and down on different items in the legend to cause the FEM to update instantaneously. Items on the FEM will blink to indicate activation.
- Select any item from the legend with a left-click and the brackets will indicate it is active. If that component belongs to an active group, then the related data on the Sizing form will be automatically located and activated there as well.
By right-clicking in the legend on a Component/Group/Assembly/Joint, the corresponding drop-down menu options are displayed, shown below.
Here you can select a custom color option. After a custom color has been selected, a “C” will be present in the corresponding color block in the legend.
