How do you change graph builder default legend settings?

Hi all,

 

I have so far been able to alter the default settings of most parts of graph builder - font, marker size, ect.

 

However, I have been unable to do this for the legend. I essentially use the same legend style for every legend: white back ground, black border, placed somewhere on the graph itself out of the way of the data. That way I can make graphs as large as possible without losing a strip of space to a legend in say a word document.

 

Is there a way I can set that up as the default setting so I can save myself some time.

 

Thanks

File > Preferences (or Ctrl+K) > Platforms > Graph Builder.  Its the second option at the top:

Hi @AGM,

 

As far as I can tell, the only preference you can set for the legend and Graph Builder is the legend position.  It would be nice to have that capability.  Might be worthwhile adding that to the wish list.

Thanks for your help, that worked for the legend position.

 

I'll give it a day or so, if no-one comes up with any more suggestions then I'll put you response as the answer.
