Labels in Legend

Idea created by 1_Baloney on Sep 19, 2012
    Scenario: a polygon layer of varying symbology is labelled differently for each symbol.

    Is there some way of being able to choose to have one of those labels in each polygon showing in the legend? This would help to identify those poygons better in the map, if their (associated) label can be shown, too.

    For example, I used graphic text to add to the legend below, but could this be available as a tick box in setting up the legend?


    I think this is similar to someone wantiong highway shields shown on line symbols in a legend, but this is more specifically to do with polygons.
