Adjusting symbology

Legend information pertaining to the selected map layer can be viewed and manipulated by double clicking the legend. The "Layer Properties" dialog box allows the user to view properties of the layer and adjust symbology details. The "Symbol Editor" can be accessed by clicking one of the colors in the Symbology sub-category. Patchworks provides extremely flexible symbology tools with numerous options. Because of the flexibility and options, an entire chapter has been dedicated to Adjusting Map Symbology.
