This app is a better way to create legends in Cytoscape. It adds a control panel that can scan the current network and stylesheet to create legends for each of the mappings defined. It provides additional controls for adding a title or subtile, boxing around the legend, or setting the orientation and positioning.
The legend is the completion of visual styles. It is built from the list of continuous and discrete mappings defined in the current style. [http://manual.cytoscape.org/en/stable/Styles.html Read more...]
In many cases, you will not want to show all of the legend entries that could be generated, so check boxes control which mapping will be generated.
Legends are created as *annotations* in the *background layer*. Use the tools found in the *Annotation Panel* to edit the details of font, style and color.
Coming Soon: Edge attribute legends, scriptability.
