Quite often, I have to prepare dummy layers for the legend: either I don't want to patch to display in the legend at all, so I make a copy of the original layer with a transparent symbology. Or I need to change the symbology: what looks good in the map doesn't look good in the legend, for example:
- I need to make a symbol on the outline larger to be visible in the legend, which would be too large in the map
- I need to decrease the size of the line / outline, since it is so large it looks too chunky in the legend
- I need to increase/decrease a symbol to be properly visible
- and so on.
It would be super helpful to be able to make changes to the patch for the display in the legend without changing the symbology of the layer. Bonus to be able to remove it, but being able to make it transparent would be enough!
