Can legend information be edited?

I'm wondering if it is possible to filter out unwanted symbols or information in the Legend - whether shown in a presentation, or on a map. In other words, could we determine if all layers and/or symbols or shades or a layer, should be shown in the legend - or if we can weed out the info that we don't want shown when having the legend in view.


In the attached file, a presentation slide with a building symbol is shown. When displaying the legend, a whole slew of unused symbols are given. Can we choose to NOT have that? No need to have a buddhist temple on many maps...


I LOVE that I can have students put their legends right in their map slides. In general, though, presentations can be much cleaner - with less clutter - if there was some fine-tuning available for how legends appear.
