" I guess I'll play around with pointing arrows"



Here is an imperfect attempt, unsuitable for mass production:


*******
sysuse auto, clear

tw (kdensity mpg) (pcarrowi 0 16.1 .08 16.1, msize(zero)) /* 
 */ (pcarrowi 0 22.22 0.08 22.22, lpattern(dash) msize(zero))  /* 
 */ (pcarrowi 0 28.33 .08 28.33, lpattern(dash_dot_dot) msize(zero)),  /* 
 */ legend(order(1 "mpg density" 2 "16.1" 3 "22.22" 4 "28.33"))
*******

I thank both Maarten and Alan for the solutions they proposed.
However, I need to avoid inserting texts by the axes.

The problem is that my reference lines are close enough to make the
label texts illegible, even if I were to send one of them to the top
axis as suggested.

This was indeed the original reason for me looking for a solution
involving legends (which allow much more flexible texts).

I guess I'll play around with pointing arrows and texts inserted at
arbitrary places in the graph, however, if anyone has a solution
involving legends it will be much appreciated.

greetings and thanks again,
robert
