Why can't I change legend symbol to line symbol?
I am trying to change a legend symbol to a flowing water line but can't seem to manage it. I have gone into legend items/style/properties and have selected override default but it doesn't work! Weirdly it will change patch shape (e.g. to water body) but not to a line symbol. Help!
Mapping Center Answer:
If your feature is really a polygon then you cannot have the legend display the symbol as a line, unless you simply show the line as the outline of the polygon. You could convert the polygons to lines and then symbolize those lines in the legend. If your water features are polygons and you do this, then you will end up with lines on either side of streams.
I am not quite sure what you mean by a "flowing water line", so maybe you could write back and tell us a bit more about what you mean so we can try to help you apply the right symbology.
