You are right. I was using the subtitle() found in the -by- window, not in the title window.

You still need to enter the commands into the subtitle box. At least I could not get the menus to do the job.

Thanks for all your help. Now I just need to work through why I get twice as many ticks as I want in Stata7.

```
You have got to watch where the -subtitle()- goes.
Tucked inside -by()- it applies to the whole graph.
Otherwise it applies to each panel.
That's not the whole answer, I guess.
