Re: st: Twoway-graph appears different in version 11 and version 12

Dirk Enzmann (dirk.enzmann@uni-hamburg.de) reported a difference in
the positioning of a graph title between Stata 11 and Stata 12.
His original email follows my signature below.

We have reproduced the issue here and will fix it in a future update.
In the meantime, Dirk can work around this, as Scott Merryman suggested,
by adding the option -position(12)- to his overall graph -title()- option.
