st: Odd behavior of -graph hbar- with value labels containing apostrophes |

I have run across an interesting problem: I am trying to make bar graphs over categorical variables, with value labels, e.g.: . graph hbar(mean) satisfied, over(q12) In this situation, the value labels extend off the edge of the y axis, such that only a couple of letters appear. . label list q12 q12: 1 definitely true 2 somewhat true 3 no strong opinion 4 somewhat untrue 5 definitely untrue 6 don't know/refused If I do the following: . label define q12 6 "do not know/refuse", modify . graph hbar(mean) satisfied, over(q12) Then it looks as it should. If I then go back: . label define q12 6 "don't know/refuse", modify . graph hbar(mean) satisfied, over(q12) again the value labels are unreadable. Is this a known limitation? Any suggestions for eliminating offending characters in a large number of value labels? Thanks in advance.
