Have the ability to select layers from multiple data frame to create a legend.

 

Sometimes I create maps with multiple frames that have different layers. To create one legend for the maps I have to create separate legends for each frame and organise all of them together. It will be really nice if the legend properties has the options of picking map layers from the different data frames to create a legend...A "Composite Legend".

This would be incredibly helpful when creating maps with different spatial extents and features at each.

Very much agreed! This would be very helpful for organizing information in complex layouts.

Maps with insets are common, so would be nice to have settings for this instead of conglomerating multiple legends together.
