Thanks Nick; my apologies; the dummy data doesn't fully illustrate the
issue; the plot with my real data has empty space only in the pos(2)

Dear 'Listers,

I am trying to 'nudge' the legend key and text to avoid impinging on
my plot. There's an 'East' etc. option in the graphics editor, but it only
applies to the text and not the key; the justification options have
also failed. Any of the graphics gurus out there have any ideas?

***** Begin example *****

net install gr0002_3.pkg // install scheme 'lean2'

webuse brcancer, clear
stset rectime, failure(censrec = 1)

sts graph, by(hormon) ///
legend(size(large) ring(0) pos(2) justification(right)) ///
legend(label (1 "Long Category Name") label (2 "Category A")) ///
legend(label (3 "Category B") label (4 "Category C")) ///
legend(order(2 3 4 1)) //

***** End example *****
