This has been on everybody's wish list since 1998, if not earlier. To the best of my knowledge, we are still waiting for subscripts and Greek letters in Stata graph labels and notes. You can, of course, use the menu sequenceDear Statalist, I was wondering if there is a way to incorporate mathematical notation into Stata graph labels and notes. I would like to use subscripts and Greek letters at the very least, but also more complicated formulas with fractions and mathematical symbols like orthogonal. Is there a way to do this is Stata, perhaps using TeX?

Preferences->Graph preferences

to set the graph font to "Symbol", but this changes all letters on all graph labels to mathematical symbols and/or Greek letters, not just the letters you want to change in the graph labels you want to change.

What we really want is a facility for changing the font within a Stata graphics text box (eg a title, label or note). I don't know if StataCorp are working on this. However, until we have this, the best we can do is probably to make our Stata graphs without any axis labels or titles and to add our labels with subscripts and/or Greek letters to our figures at TeX level. I myself do not do this, and try to make do with "micrograms/litre" when I really would prefer $\mu{\rm gm/l}^{-1}$.
