I'd like to show a list of symbols (section marker, elev marker, etc) on my cover sheet, however I can't get them to come in.  Is there a way to make a symbol schedule or to drag symbols onto a sheet and not have them linked to anything?  I'd appreciate any help you can offer.  Thanks in advance!

try this 

 Create a legend view

  1. On the View menu, click New Legend.
  2. In the Project Browser, expand Legends.
  3. Right-click Legend 1, and click Rename.
  4. In the Rename View dialog box, enter Symbol Legend for Name, and click OK.

Add symbols to the legend

  1. On the Drafting tab of the Design Bar, click Symbol.
  2. Add the following symbols to the legend view, selecting each from the Type Selector and placing it in the legend as shown.
    • Section Head - Filled
    • Level Head - Upgrade : 1/8"
    • wall tag
    • door tag
    • window tag

Create a text type

  1. On the Design Bar, click Text.

    Because the text size for the symbol legend is not available in the Type Selector, you create a text type with the necessary size. You do this by duplicating an existing text type and modifying the type properties.

  2. In the Type Selector, select Text : 1/4" text .
  3. On the Options bar, click Properties.
  4. In the Element Properties dialog box, click Edit/New.
  5. In the Type Properties dialog box, click Duplicate, enter 1/8" text for Name, and click OK.
  6. Under Text, enter 1/8" for Text Size, and click OK twice.

Add text to the legend

  1. In the Type Selector, verify that Text : 1/8" text is selected, and click to the right of the first symbol to specify the text start point.
  2. Enter Detail Callout (detail #/sheet #) for the text note

 

15. Working from the top down, enter the following text for the remaining symbols in the legend:

  • Level Marker (Level name/Elevation in Feet)
  • Wall Tag (Wall Type #)
  • Door Tag (Door #)
  • Window Tag (Window Type #)

Place the symbol legend on a sheet

  1. In the Project Browser, expand Sheets (all), and double-click Cover Sheet to open it in the drawing area.
  2. In the Project Browser, click Symbol Legend, drag it to the lower-right corner of the cover sheet, and click to place it.
  3. On the Design Bar, click Modify to end the command.

    The symbol legend is added to the project cover sheet.

Thank you so much!  Do you know if there's a way to show symbols in detail views.
