Having a method for creating legends with the API would be nice.

Make Legend views accessible through Dynamo and API, this way many of us would be able to make legends easy to make and update.

This would be a massive time save, especially considering on large projects the amount of types that need to be placed in a Legend. How is this not already accessible. Its 2020.

Legend Views are accessible through active view!

 

for example, if you open a Legend View in Revit that window will be the active view for Dynamo, therefore accessible through script.

 

Simple and efective!

This would be extremely helpful to be able to automate creation of a legend. We want to show a legend of all the various panel types being used in the project and, without API access, we either have to create/modify a legend for every project or include panels in the legend that aren't being used in the project. This is just one example of the legends we want to include.

@Anonymous I believe the OP is talking about the API's lack of the ability to create a new Legend. Duplicate/similar ideas (@kimberly.fuhrman):

This would eliminate a possible error case with pyRevit's "Copy Sheets To Open Documents" command (under "Sheets" pulldown in "Drawing Set" panel)

I searched for a long time to find any APi for creating Legend Components in Internet, but no any result.
