A nice and customized legend within Manipulate
Posted:

Hello
I need to create a cdf document as a standalone file that can be used in a computer without Mathematica. There is quite a few plots in the doc and I need to add nice legends to it. At first I tried the Legend package but I found the result awful and worse than that it breaks the standalone cdf (something to do with Needs and Get or the like).
It seems that I need to add a initialization code within Manipulate but I have no idea on how to do it. Could someone help me with an example, please?
Finally, is there a simple way to create nice legends? I saw several posts on the web but could not gather much from them. A nice and simple example (for a newbie) will help me a lot.
Many thanks
Ed
