Tom,

Thanks for the suggestion. I edited out the % in a text editor, but I guess I made it worse. In any event, my edit didn't work. I won't do it again.

Fred,

This is just speculation but, in V9.2 graphics, you could edit and resave a saved .gph file in a hex editor provided you did not
change the number of characters. Perhaps if you replace the % in ..plotregion1.barlabels[8].text.Arrpush 3.8% with another (valid)
character, you can recover your graph and continue editing.

Subject: st: Frustrating problem with Stata 10 graph editor

The graph editor is quite nice and very useful. However, I have run
into a problem. I was making an hbar graph, made many modifications,
and then modified blabel to add a % sign (what many of us had asked
for on the list). The editor accepted the % sign. I saved the graph,
but when I tried to use it I received this message:

plotregion1.barlabels[8].text invalid name
error (198) reading file
Error in file, skipping lines:
.plotregion1.barlabels[8].text.Arrpush 3.8%
<EndItem>
graph1.gversion invalid name

I am now unable to -use- the graph and all of my time and work is
lost. I know better now, but I suggest that the editor not allow
entries that will crash the graph.

Fred
