I am probably sure this is not the only way, but when dealing with attributes and legends (or text boxes) we always export the values to a Excel file, then make the text box look as you want (also remove the grid lines in excel) then you can copy and paste the excel file into a graphic editing program (photoshop, illustrator, even mspaint if thats all you ...
Just hold the SHIFT Button down while you draw a rectangular over the elements. Fore more details see the ArcGIS help, Using mouse shortcuts in the table of contents. Shift+click selects all layers or data frames between two layers or data frames within the same table of contents level.
At this stage (when your legend is fixed), you should convert your legend to graphics, ungroup the component and manually arrange them as you want (there are tools to align and distribute the graphics).
Thanks, @iriberri! I did not know it is possible to edit the legend's HTML and CSS. However I decided not to add a gradient to the bubbles in the legend, since this would mean mixing up to different value ranges. In my case the color is independent from the size of the bubble for each data point, and vice versa. I have found a way to display both value ...
Perhaps the custom legend I'm showing in this map is useful for you: http://bl.ocks.org/iriberri/5b2c5b9001b48ee11f7e The code is as follows (notice you can copy&paste it in the custom HTML option for legends in the CartoDB Editor): <div class='cartodb-legend density'> <ul> <li class="min"> Percent % </li> <li ...
GeoServer supports the WMS GetLegendGraphics request. See: http://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/services/wms/get_legend_graphic/legendgraphic.html
You can customize the legend by clicking that little </> button in the upper right of your included image, which lets you edit the HTML of the legend widget. (Note: Making legend changes in the wizard afterward may overwrite your custom changes, so copy them to a Notepad file or elsewhere if you plan on tinkering with it further.) Using HTML and ...
This is an out-of-the-box feature of legends in ArcGIS for Desktop (since about 10.1): You can also add feature counts to your legend by checking the Show feature count check box. It works well when Data Driven Pages are enabled.
In QGIS 2.8 Composer, there's a Wrap text on option in the Item properties tab when you add a legend which lets you enter a character where you want the new line to start. What I normally do is use the * character in the layer's name for where I want the new line. Then input the * into the Wrap text option. (I'm using QGIS 2.8.2-Wien): Hope this ...
Why don't you generate a dummy 'legend' dataset reflecting your data classes that you can label, position away from the action, and persist through time so that it is constantly shown in the TimeManager stills?
As far as I know, there is no way to get the legend rendered in the main map window. One approach to generate a video with legend would be to add an image containing the legend to the video using video processing software.
