Perhaps you want to tweak the -legend- option? For example: webuse drug2 sts graph, by(drug) legend(rows(1) label(1 "1") label(2 "2")) There are probably more elegant ways to approach the problem but on the fly this seems to work.

There are many reasons for this, not least because if I have more than a few values in the variable, the legend becomes a little unwieldy and I also entitle the graph so that its clear what I'm graphing. >> >> I've had a search around on Google but don't seem to be able to find exactly what I want.
