Statalisters,

I'm trying to add text to the upper left of my scatter plot via the -text()- option.  However, because Stata chooses the x and y ranges to be neat, there's no way for me to know exactly what the minimum x value & maximum y value are.  If I simply choose these values from my data, the text box is always closer to the center than I'd like.

Is there a way to obtain this information from Stata?  Alternatively, is there an option to place the textbox in the upper left?

Thank you,

- Elan
