Dear All:

I have a legend with ten symbols/keys and a relatively long title.  I
would like the title to be left-justified in the legend box, and for
the symbols/keys to be arranged in a single left-justified column.
That is, I would like the left edge of the symbols to appear directly
under the very first character of the title.

I know how to left-justify the title of the legend, and I know how to
make the keys appear in a single column, but for the life of me I
cannot get that column to appear anywhere but centered under the text.
 I tried the legend suboption "symplacement," but to no avail.

By way of illustration:
webuse grunfeld,clear
#delimit;
twoway (line invest year if company==1)
(line invest year if company==2)
(line invest year if company==3),
legend(cols(1)
title("This fairly long title demonstrates my problem:",
placement(west) justification(left) size(small))
subtitle("I would like the column of symbols/keys left-justified rather"
"than centered, which creates awkward white space",
placement(west) justification(left) size(vsmall))
symxsize(*.5));

Many thanks,
Dorothy
