Legend Properties

The Legend Properties define the appearance of the Legend element itself, such as its background color, title text color and size, and border color. If you choose to use default colors, these are derived from the Options dialog, Standard Colors page. The title of the element defaults to Legend, but you can give the element a different title such as Key, Index or Guide.
