Map Legend Splitter Tool

Last modified: October 21, 2019

The Map Legend Splitter tool takes a legend from the Report Map Tool and splits it into its component parts. Once split, the legend can be customized by the use of other tools. Use the Map Legend Builder Tool to easily build the legend again.

Configure the tool

This tool is expecting a report snippet that consists of a map legend. This information is contained in the "Legend" field. Prior to using this tool, ensure a Report Map tool is upstream. On your Report Map tool, set your Legend Position to "Separate Field".

  • Ensure the Legend Field is set to your legend field. If the legend was created using the Report Map tool, the legend field is titled Legend.
