Legend for contour colour scheme

We have a Civil 3D surface using contours which are coloured according to the elevation.  But when we do a surface legend, and use contours, it just numbers the contours instead of using the colours.  Anyone ever created a surface table with the colours of each contour elevation?

I think you'll have to use an elevation legend to show the color scheme. Set the contour and elevation ranges to the same values and yopu should get what you want.
