When adding a layer to a legend, there is an option to sync font (size, family, decoration, etc). It would be nice to have this same option for patch characteristics (width and height) to avoid needing to resize the patches after adding new layers to the legend.

Hi,

You actually can do this in Pro. The patch size is part of the legend item settings. You can save the legend item settings for an existing legend item as the default legend item settings, and then all subsequently added layers (including those automatically added) will have those settings. 

To do this, set the patch size for one of the items in the legend, then right-click that legend item and choose Save as Default.

Hi Aubri,

Thanks for the info, that's great and I will use that going forward. I do think it would be nice for consistency if the option were available in the legend-proper settings as is done with the font 'sync'.
