Custom contour legend

is it possible to change the Variable name in the contour legend? E.g. I'm plotting a contour of velocity magnitude called "mag" (my variable) - but I want the legend to say "Velocity Magnitude" for publication purposes...

Changing a variable name
One way to resolve your question is to change the variable name. You can do this in Tecplot by clicking on Data>>Data Set Info… In the menu that opens highlight the variable name “mag”, and then change the name to “Velocity Magnitude” in the Variable Name box.
