<> Hi You can avoid using the graph editor by treating each "by" category as an "if" condition for a separate graph and then using -graph combine- to put them together: ******************! clear **SETUP: create vars and label vars** set obs 100 g x = abs(runiform()*100) g y = abs(runiform()*10) g category = 1+int((3-1+1)*runiform()) lab var x "Quantity of X" lab var y "Quantity of Y" **label values** lab def ll 1 "Mining/Quarrying/Oil&Gas/Extraction/Utilities/Construction/Manufacturing" , modify lab def ll 2 "Extraction/Mining/Construction/Manufacturing/Quarrying/Oil&Gas/Utilities" , modify lab def ll 3 "Oil&Gas/Utilities/Extraction/Mining/Construction/Manufacturing/OTHER", modify lab val category ll la li **graph titles** local title1 ""{bf:Mining/Quarrying/Oil&Gas}" "Extraction/Utilities" "{it:Construction/Manufacturing}"" local title2 ""{bf:Extraction/Mining/Construction}" "Manufacturing/Quarrying" "{it:Oil&Gas/Utilities}"" local title3 ""{bf:Oil&Gas/Utilities/Extraction}" "Mining/Construction" "{it:Manufacturing/OTHER}"" ************* ************* //EXAMPLE 1// ****create graphs & combine**** qui su categ forval n = `r(min)'/`r(max)' { scatter y x if category==`n', /// title(`title`n'', size(medsmall)) name(graph`n', replace) graph save graph`n' "graph`n'.gph", replace } graph combine graph1 graph2 graph3, /// rows(1) title("{stSerif:OVERALL TITLE GOES HERE}") note("{bf:Source:} Data source is X") //EXAMPLE 2// **Put this info in a text box or note and use shorter titles: qui su categ forval n = `r(min)'/`r(max)' { scatter y x if category==`n', /// title({stSerif:Industrial Activities for {bf:Nation `n'}}, size(medsmall)) name(graph`n', replace) /// text(1 85 `title`n'', orient(horizontal) si(vsmall) justification(center) box ) graph save graph`n' "graph`n'.gph", replace } graph combine graph1 graph2 graph3, /// rows(1) title("{bf:{stSerif:OVERALL TITLE GOES HERE}}") note("{bf:Source:} Data source is X") ******************! I prefer to have less information than is in your value labels as the title of a graph. I think the information in your value labels is better used in a note, text box, etc; so, I would probably go with something closer to EXAMPLE 2 above. ~ Eric __ Eric A.
