st: Apostrophe in labels breaks graph |

I am working on a graph that has French labels with apostrophes. These apostrophes break the graph, as the code below demonstrates. The graph in the example is meaningless, I only use the auto data to visualize the problem. clear all sysuse auto graph hbar mpg trunk turn, over(foreign) /// legend(row(1) span) stack name(one) lab def origin 0 "Europe de l'Ouest" /// 1 "Asie de l'Est", modify graph hbar mpg trunk turn, over(foreign) /// legend(row(1) span) stack name(two) graph hbar mpg trunk turn, over(foreign) /// legend(row(1) span) stack name(three) /// graphregion(margin(30 3 3 3)) graph hbar mpg trunk turn, over(foreign, /// relabel(1 `""Europe de" "l'Ouest""' /// 2 `""Asie de" "l'Est""')) /// legend(row(1) span) stack name(four) Graph one shows the layout that I need. In graph two the labels are mostly invisible. Graph three shows the labels, but only by adding extra margin on the left side. The problem with this solution is that -legend(span)- no longer has the desired effect because the legend stays below the horizontal axis in the graph. Graph four shows the labels, as well as the spanned legend, but I didn't manage to create this graph with the region names in a single line, as in graph three. Is it possible to show the labels with the apostrophes in a single line, with a legend that spans the entire width of the graph? I found no solution in the documentation or the Statalist archive. I also tried editing individual labels in the Graph Editor but the labels disappear as soon as I enter a label with an apostrophe.
