# How to make the legend box transparent in pgfplots?

The legend box is covering parts of the graph (even though I removed the borders). How do I make the legend box transparent?

You can add fill=none to the legend style key as in this approach.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{pgfplots}

\pgfplotsset{compat=1.9}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[
legend style={fill=none}
]
\addlegendentry{$x$};
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

Repositioning the legend or decrease of its font size could also be an option. –  Thorsten Donig Mar 4 '14 at 16:33
Thank you, works like a charm. No need to reposition or decrease font size now! –  user3218615 Mar 4 '14 at 16:42
