MMA 9.0: What is the intended purpose of the Legended command?
11 years ago
So my second fumbling attempt at getting comfortable with MMA is snagging right where my first left off: generating plots for export with legends. I'm reading through all the examples, and I will get there, but I'm confused about the occasional use of "Legended", with and without use of "PlotLegends". The Legended reference page:
has an example that uses Legended without calling PlotLegends at all, while almost all other examples I see use PlotLegends exclusively. I think I'm just unclear about the purpose of Legended, when all of the legend functionality seems to (usually) come from the PlotLegends command. What am I missing here?
Thanks all, and have a great day.

I'm not sure if I fully understand your question, but you think of Lengended and the PlotLegend option as two different ways of creating a Legend for you plots. If you are comfortable with Legended yet, PlotLegend probably will be sufficient for most purposes.
The Legended syntax is a bit more like the Tooltip syntax, which some people might prefer.
