The answer is to do both. First, create a copy cat layer, making the point symbols in your legend larger. Bring your good map layer to the front so the second map (with the large icons) is hidden. Create the legend for the second map so in the legend the symbols are big. Convert that legend to a graphic. Remove the layer (bad map). The legend will still ...

This can be done with a bit of trial-and-error in the Legend settings. In your Layer Properties Symbology tab, right-click on each symbol category and select Edit Description and enter the text you want on the second line eg (-102.12 - 17.92) and remove this text from the symbol label. Second create your Legend. Once it's created double-click on it to ...

To make changes in the legend, first you will have to enable editing, right click the legend -> convert to graphics , then select the labels you want to edit and right click -> ungroup. Now you can manually move them around as much as you want and edit any individual parts, just move the lines with the text under the label. When you are satisfied with what ...

For anyone who comes across this issue, I have found an even simpler solution. This works for us because we're printing a 36x48" paper map for a client, so the relative size of the symbols on the map (increasing from 12.00 pt to 18.00 pt) was not an issue. Without further ado: The legend is a reflection of the layers you choose to display from the Table of ...

Something like 2.00 - 5.00 people/km2 in the layer name or layer description will work just as well. the 2 is enclosed between Superscript tag Read this for more info about format tags available in ArcMap.

fmt has nothing to do with the spacing of legend items. For a detailed description of fmt please see Use C-style String Formatting Commands. Simply paste the following code snippet in your R console to see the differences (pi ~ 3.14): sprintf("%f", pi) sprintf("%.3f", pi) sprintf("%1.0f", pi) sprintf("%5.1f", pi) sprintf("%05.1f", pi) sprintf("%+f", pi) ...

Use the character map to copy and paste the super-script character. It's a Windows tool, just search for it. You can use this for all sorts of characters that have Diacritic marks.

First off you should remove the "TIE". You can probably stay with 6 fields if you want, but it depends on your data's deviations. You want to be careful with having too many fields because the naked eye cannot perceive the color differences. Removing the white "TIE" is going to allow you to make your 1st and 2nd fields more distinguishable. Right now they ...

That error is telling you that the variable test has not been defined. To check whether it was try examining: for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd,"",df): if lyr.name == "Temperature": test = lyr.name by adding two print statements: for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd,"",df): print lyr.name if lyr.name == "Temperature": ...

I think you problem is in this line mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"C:\Project\\" + mxdname) try this mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("C:/Project/" + mxdname)

I asked CartoDB customer support for help and they responded: The issue is that any non-inline styles are sanitized out of that Editor panel, >for security reasons. Have you tried that when building your map with CartoDB.js? >The styles should work that way. Makes total sense to me -- the only reason I was so confused was because of the earlier SE ...

This has been fixed in the upcoming version 2.14.2.

Not sure it's currently possible but if you want, you can increase your 2cm window to a 4cm window by moving the Atlas generation dock window somewhere inside the middle of the Legend window. This should turn the Atlas generation window into a menu tab: Now you should have a little more space but not a huge amount:

I figured out a great work around... Within the data driven pages attribute table: I select the pages in which the legend placement works and export only those pages. Then I move the legend to work for the other pages, switch my selection within the attribute table and export the new selection. In a perfect world I could individualize the layouts within ...

No, there isn't a way to do that unless you write your own code. Are you handy with arcpy? Barring that, what you could do is use a side panel for the legend, and decrease the size of your data frame slightly. Then you won't have anything sitting on top of your data. Also, do you have "Only show classes that are visible in current map extent" checked on ...

I have managed this earlier by following this workflow: Double-click the Legend in the Layout. Legend Properties > Items tab. Select the layer in the list and click the Style button. Click the Properties button. Go to the General tab and click Label Symbol. Click the Edit Symbol button. Then use the X and Y offset values to move the labels to the left - ...

You need to workaround this using the following: Duplicate the original legend to a have a copy of it. Double click the original legend go to items -> double click the target layer -> General -> Appearance make sure all labels are unchecked. If you want to show the Layer label of the original legend, you need to do the same for the copied one. Double Click ...

I solved this by applying a single color to all the polygons captured by my query across layers. Then I created a legend folder into which I added stub memory polygon layer with a zero dimension polygon giving it the corresponding query's color. I then pass this group to the legend for processing.
