Dear,

we have just come across this question. Is there any possibility to
force a certain numeric format when using macros in e.g. title-option
of graph?

this for example DOES NOT work:

local sqrt2=string(sqrt(2)

twoway function y=x, title("Test-title:" %8.2f  `sqrt2')

Thanks for your efforts!

Kind regards,
sebastian
