Legend options

When the legend option is enabled it can show either the value mappings or the threshold brackets. To show the value mappings in the legend, it’s important that the Color scheme option under Standard options is set to Single color or Classic palette. To see the threshold brackets in the legend set the Color scheme to From thresholds.
