Hi all, in using Nick Cox's -slideplot- command (from SSC), I am attempting to add text on the far left and, if possible, I would like that text to be vertical (explained below) as an example, here is code using Stata's auto data set: slideplot hbar rep78, neg(1 2 3) pos(4 5) by(foreign) percent legend(subtitle("FIM Scale") span cols(7)) ytitle("Percent of the population with these scores") text(-143 50 "Impairment Groups", orient(vertical) align(middle) size(medium) angle(vertical)) title("AdmissionFIM_Comprehension") This may be a little confusing as I have changed as little as I could get away with; most of the text deals with a medical example using the Functional Independence Measure (FIM), widely used in rehab hospitals in the US (and some other countries); the text I am concerned with here is "Impairment Groups" which I would like to look as follows: I m p a i r m e n t G r o u p s I had thought that the "angle" option would do this, but it has no effect (i.e., the graph looks the same without the option as with it and continues to look the same whether the anglestyle is given as "vertical" or as "horizontal" any ideas?
