<> Wrapping in graph titles (or axis labels, notes, captions, etc) occurs when there are embedded quotes in the title, so "Database Analysis" will not wrap, `" " Database" "Analyses" "' will wrap. Modifying Maarten's example, here's the wrapping: *-------------- begin example --------------- sysuse auto, clear local title " Database" "Analysis" forvalues i = 1/5 { scatter price mpg if rep78==`i', /// title("`title'") /// name(gr`i', replace) } *--------------- end example ---------------- - Eric __ Eric A.
