It appears that there is a bug in legends being able to copy between projects
I did a search on legend transfer and there was a lot of bad advice based on how we used to copy schedules from one project to another prior to the Insert From File function (put it on a sheet, copy to anothe sheet in the target project).
While the following makes intuitive sense (well maybe intuitive for my inner geek): Open up the source legened, copy items to a legend in the target project.
Unless I am doing something dramatically wrong or it is just a vista 64 bit glitch, here is the rub:
Lines will copy from one projects legend to another projects legend
Text will copy from one projects legend to another projects legend
but a selection set of Text and lines will NOT paste into the target legend.
Symbols will NOT paste into the target legend
I went back and tried this on the last version of 2008 with similar results, so it is either my machine/install or a bug.
I am curious if it is just me, because the threads that advise copy and paste between legends are complete threads from the 9.1-2008 migration cycle and noone seems to mention it....possibly something that broke during one of the 2008 updates? Did a quick scan in the Known Issues thread, nothing popped out at me
