You want something like

. scatter c id, ytitle("Left" "justified", just(left) orient(horiz))

and this is well documented in the on-line help.
No.
Sorry, my comment was misleading. What I meant was fixing the labels (not the titles). I referred to the example of Phillipe:
.sysuse auto
.hist foreign, xlabel(0 "Domestic" 1 `""Foreign" "(Europe/Japan)""')
.discrete

The label than looks as follows:
>>>>
Foreign
(Europe/Japan)
>>>>
But I would like to fix both lines on the left, e.g
>>>
Foreign
(Europe/Japan)
>>>

Thank you again!
I agree with you on the importance of fixing the axis title.
I, for example, would like to fix both lines on the left side
(instead
of having them centered),

e.g.:
Foreign
(Europe/Japan)

<<<and not:
     Foreign
(Europe/Japan)

Do I find such advices in the recommended article?

Andreas

That last point is a good one. Some advice was given in
