Pages of explanation would not make this clear. Better to run the commands Friedrich supplied and see the problem for yourself. Scott Merryman <scott.merryman@gmail.com> came up with what Friedrich rightly calls an "amazing" solution. . graph hbar mpg trunk, over(rep78, /// relabel(1 `"" "" ""1"" "" ""' 2 `"" "" ""2"" "" ""' 3 `""Two" "lines""')) Scott basically forced the correct alignment of labels by throwing a pair of blank lines around each default label that was displaying one row higher than center. Scott's creative solution notwithstanding, this looks like a bug to me and one that we will fix in the next ado updates. -- Vince vwiggins@stata.com * * 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/
