I'm creating a schematic floor plan with department coloring.  In my reading I'm finding that the color legend needs to be placed within the floor plan views, but this is presenting the problem I'm hoping you can help resolve.  The building is small enough that both the upper and lower floors fit onto one D-size drawing.  However, due to all the departments not being on both floors, the associated color legends are different and I cannot have one legend that serves both floors.  But, it certainly doesn't look very professional to have two different color legends on the same drawing. (see attached)  Is there a way to have a universal "FULL" color legend?

I can think of a possible hack fix, but it is certainly hack.  Make a fake floor well below my lowest level and create a fake plan with all the departments represented.  Then crop the view to only the legend of that floor and put it on the sheet.  But I'm hoping someone can tell me Revit isn't still dysfunctional on this most basic of Architectural processes.

It turns out that hack doesn't even work as cropping the view to only the legend eliminates all colors and legend items from the list.

Hack revision:  Place a masking region over the fake floor plan and place the legend on the sheet first so the masking region falls behind your floor plan.  Revise sheet attached.  But, still looking for how to do this without having a dungeon in my model...
