Usage IVS Basic – legend texts

Legend texts are not always necessary. If you place the results of a question on the same slide as the answers, you can choose a horizontal chart and place the bars after the answers. If you do not have enough room for this on the slide or if you choose to use a vertical or pie chart, you will need legend text. In version 3.5x the legend text is identical to the answer text. In version 4.x the legend text will be broken off after 30 characters.

The legend text is usually identical to the answer text. If you wish to change this legend text for reasons of space, simply selected the answer by pressing the right mouse button and then selecting “Properties” in the window that pops up. You can determine the legend text you wish to use at the bottom of the window that pops up.
