# [Therion] \legendwidth was: symbol-color special

It might not be the text width, but it seems to appear when I add the
comment.
I have split the legend, so believe I have to use tex-map.

Attached is the full thconfig file

but I think that the relevant bit is

code tex-map

statement!!!!}{}
#\legendtextcolor={\color[100 100 100]}
#\legendtitle{\color[100 100 100]Key}{}
\def\maplayout{
\legendbox{60}{10}{nw}{
\northarrow
\bigskip
\scalebar
# \bigskip
# \bigskip
#\the\comment
}
#  \legendbox{0}{0}{nw}{
#  \the\comment
# }
\legendbox{0}{30}{sw}{
\formattedlegend
}
}
endcode

This gives what I want,

(although control over colour would be nice so I can make the sump map blue)

however as soon as I add the comment under the scale bar

code tex-map

statement!!!!}{}
#\legendtextcolor={\color[100 100 100]}
#\legendtitle{\color[100 100 100]Key}{}
\def\maplayout{
\legendbox{60}{10}{nw}{
\northarrow
\bigskip
\scalebar
\bigskip
\bigskip
\the\comment
}
#  \legendbox{0}{0}{nw}{
#  \the\comment
# }
\legendbox{0}{30}{sw}{
\formattedlegend
}
}
endcode

it expands to the right by quiet a bit

So I thought that maybe with /legendwidth I could deal with this. Try

code tex-map

statement!!!!}{}
#\legendtextcolor={\color[100 100 100]}
#\legendtitle{\color[100 100 100]Key}{}
\legendwidth=2cm
\def\maplayout{
\legendbox{60}{10}{nw}{
\northarrow
\bigskip
\scalebar
\bigskip
\bigskip
\the\comment
}
#  \legendbox{0}{0}{nw}{
#  \the\comment
# }
\legendbox{0}{30}{sw}{
\formattedlegend
}
}
endcode
endlayout

But even at 2cm, nothing happens, I would expect the text to be put on
multiple rows, even if that is not what is causing the expansion.

Also tried

legend-width 2 cm

but same output

Am I missing something

Most of the data is downloadable anonymously but to get the background
image a pw will be needed, which I am happy to give to anyone on the
therion list
