At first glance, this problem appears to be limited to -graph matrix-, though we will look further. We will fix this in the next ado update. Regarding, Sergiy Radyakin's <serjradyakin@gmail.com> creative work-around (Sergiy must be doing an awful lot of playing with the underpinnings of graphics, reading my talks about those underpinnings, or both), I have two comments. Sergiy suggested, . sysuse auto . graph matrix l w, title("whatever") . .Graph.title.text[1]="test's" . .Graph.drawgraph First, change . .Graph.title.text[1]="test's" to . _gm_edit .Graph.title.text[1]="test's" Prefixing with -_gm_edit- registers the edit with the graph so that it will be shown if the graph is saved and used. Without the -_gm_edit- the title will not appear if the graph is saved and later -graph use-ed. Don't look for documentation on this trick, we have not formalized access to this layer of the graphics system. Second, change . .Graph.drawgraph to . graph display This just replaces the low-level invocation of the drawing member function of the graph class with it's nearly equivalent, but documented and easier to use, command -- -graph display-. -- 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/
