I see... Pehaps it is time to check if there is any money left on my grant for an upgrade of STATA. As for the titles, I am trying to use (almost) complete Likert-type statement from the items. However, e.g. the statement: "company or founder already had good reputation" (46 chars) is truncated to "company or founder already had g" which is 32 chars long. This happens even if the axis is alsmost three times as long as the full statement would be. So, I guess it is the limit and 32 characters rings "four times eight bits" to me. Thanks (a lot), Jonas Dahlqvist Jönköping International Business School Jönköping, SWEDEN >>> n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk 2004-11-17 12:30:17 >>> You may not like this answer, but the best way to deal with this is to upgrade to Stata 8. You are quite right. Even by Stata 7 the -graph- code was in several respects very dated. Some of it went back to a time when value labels were at most 8 characters long, and thus axis labels were truncated. In essence, StataCorp didn't fix this because they were working on a total overhaul, which is now in Stata 8. In the case of axis titles, my guess is just that there just not enough space to show your variable label, but I am still surprised by that. Perhaps you could give a concrete example.

I use Stata 7 Intercooled. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
