st: problem adding textbox to graph with 2 y axes |

Date |

I'm trying to add a text box to a graph that has 2 y axes with different scales. I can add the text to a single graph, and I can add the text to a graph with 2 y variables if they are on the same axis, but when I add a second y axis I get a mystifying error message. I've replicated the problem below using the auto.dta dataset; commands and log are below. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Brian
