Zoom and snip drawing
Using Snipping Tool to zoom and combine legend on Drawing
You can use a standard EDGE spray chart report (or any drawing report) and the Snipping tool found in Windows Vista. This is a tool to crop a portion of a screen and paste it on another screen). The first file is just the spray chart converted to pdf. You see the entire drawing and header information.
The second file is in Word format. In this case I was in the pdf file, used Snipit to crop the drawing and paste to a Word file. Crop the legend and past to the same Word file. Right click on the pated legend and change the wrapping properties so it’s on top.
