    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    That's an interesting question that I don't think has ever come up before (someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

    I don't think there IS any way to save the key separately from the chart in iStitch.

    However, I'm intrigued as to why you would want to do this in the first place, as the key will always be generated from the chart, and doesn't really mean anything by itself? I mean, when you save the chart, you are automatically saving the key as well.

    Hi! I use istitch quite a lot. When you upload a saved chart, it brings up the chart key for that chart and the colours you have used should have a little tick in the top left corner.

    I have just had a go at adding the key to a chart and I've found a way of doing this, as follows...

    With the chart open, click on "Functions" along the top of the screen, then "stitching" in the sub-menu, and finally "On chart key". This will let you choose where to place the key and how big to make the text on the key. I suggest you have a play with it to see how it works. If you don't like where the key is, or what it looks like, just click "Undo".

    Once the key is on the chart to your satisfaction, you can do what you like with the end result and the chart and key will be part of the same document.

    Good Luck!
