There's a new video that shows the new legend capabilities in build 9.0.179:

First Look - Legends in Maps and Layouts

Description: See how easy it is to add legends to a map window in Manifold Release 9 with only a single click: the new legend capabilities provide fast, easy legends in map windows. We can also add legends to print layouts in a single click as well. The new system provides both fast and simple legends as well as the capability to fully customize print layout legends for those who wish to use a vast toolbox of different formatting capabilities. The video also shows how legend formatting is saved in a map's properties, so we can alter or create legends for map windows either programmatically or using SQL. Super! The entire video is filmed on a Windows 11 system.

Great video. I missed some of the nuances when playing with the new features and this really filled in the gaps on how to take advantage of it!

We try to both have the dynamic legend that is very easy to set up and automatically updates after changes to formatting *and* have the ability to turn it into a static legend so that you can manually edit and format every item / add new items with custom content / delete items you don't want to have / etc.
