I first added, as an example, text(0.49 0.45 "Project 1", place(w)) to the scatter command. That worked. But I have 10 projects. I would have to add 10 such text commands. This is very inefficient. Is there a better way?-mlabel()- option? See -help marker_label_options- For example: . sysuse auto,clear (1978 Automobile Data) . scatter mpg weight in 1/5, mlabel(make) mlabpos(9) mlabs(*.75) Scott * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
