Thank you Martin and Nick for your responses,

I tried using the orientation sub-option but when producing graphs with a by- option it didn't seem to register and kept it the default (vertical)
For example:
twoway (scatter weight price), by(foreign) ytitle("hello", orientation(horizontal)) I am unsure where to put the text or subtitle option so it doesn't put it in both graphs, as for example:
twoway (scatter weight price), by(foreign) text(5050 5050 "hello")

I would do the horizontal thing in the code

*************
sysuse auto, clear
twoway (scatter weight price), ytitle(, orientation(horizontal))
*************

and then go into the Graph Editor and change the "Textbox properties" for
the y-title, Advanced Tab, Change the x-offset to 30 ( in this particular
case). You could record the action and -replay()- it later.

Betreff: st: axis title options

Hello,
I am looking for what option to use in a twoway scatterplot (by sex) I have produced where I would like the y-axis title to be horizontal and placed on the right hand side of the axis in the plot region just above my scatter points. I have tried angle and ring in the ytitle option but haven't managed to obtain what I want.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks,
Miranda
