You'll be able to control the scale and…the level of detail. And you'll be able to insert it as either…a plan or an elevation symbol. And the nice thing about a Legend view is…that these graphics are only representational and so they won't be…included in any counts in your models. So, they won't throw off your schedules or…anything like that. So, I'm in a file here called Legends and…I'd like to take a look at this feature by creating a door types legend.…
So, it's pretty common in architectural drawings for us to create a legend showing…an elevation of each of our doors. So, that'll be a good example for us to…look at here. So, on the Project browser, I have a…legends branch. And it's currently empty because there's…
