<> To echo Nick`s sentiment, I have now tried for some time to get Stata to behave "irrationally" with the -caption-, and have not succeeded, in spite of my honest attempts to reproduce the command provided by Dorothy as much as possible. As a last resort, she could still drag the thing around in the graph editor...

It is easier to address problems reproduced with datasets everyone can access and stripped of inessentials. With commands like these: . sysuse auto (1978 Automobile Data) . graph bar turn trunk , over(foreign) caption(whatever) . graph bar turn trunk , over(foreign) caption(whatever, pos(12)) . graph bar turn trunk , over(foreign) caption(whatever, pos(12) ring(0)) I can move the caption around. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Dorothy Bridges My caption is appearing underneath (or on top of, I guess) the category axis labels on my bar graph. I can't fathom why (I've tried specifying a different ring option, no luck). My code is as follows: #delimit; graph bar seriesAG-seriesMNF, over(year, label(labsize(medium))) percentages stack graphregion(fcolor(white) lcolor(white) margin(zero)) plotregion(fcolor(white) lcolor(white) ilcolor(white)) title("xxxx",color(black) placement(west) justification(left) size(large)) caption("Sources: xxxx", size(vsmall) placement(west) justification(left)) legend(cols(1) span position(3) stack region(lcolor(white)) title(" ", size(small)) order(10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1) rowgap(7) keygap(1) label(1 "Agriculture") label(2 "Mining, Oil & Gas") label(3 "Construction") label(4 "Wholesale" "& Retail Trade") label(5 "Financial Services") label(6 "Other Services") label(7 "Public Administration") label(8 "Utilities") label(9 "Transport" "& Communication") label(10 "Manufacturing")) xsize(7.5) ysize(4.1) ytitle("") ylabel(0 "0%" 20 "20%" 40 "40%" 60 "60%" 80 "80%" 100 "100%",glwidth(thin) glcolor(black) angle(horizontal) labsize(medium)) ; * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
