Something like this works (since I know my labels are <40 chars): local relabels "" levelsof group, local(groups) foreach g in `groups' { local label : label group `g' local len : length label if `len'>20 { local p1 : piece 1 20 "`label'", nobreak local p2 : piece 2 20 "`label'", nobreak local relabels "`relabels' `g' `""`p1'" "`p2'"'" '" } } ... graph hbar var1 var2, over(group, relabel(`relabel')) (where I have edited for clarity in a way that may have broken the code...) cheers, Jeph Jeph Herrin wrote:

Large number of graphs, but the same -over()- option for each, so can code manually if needed. But would be nice to store in a macro. J Martin Weiss wrote:`<> Any way to automate this solution?

Ideally (that is, rather than chopping down and/or footnoting) there would be a way to wrap these labels into two lines. Since each -group- value has two bars, there is plenty of space for two lines of text; however, I cannot find a way to wrap the text, even if I manually break it up into fragments. Any ideas? By the way, I have tried shrinking the labels: graph hbar var1 var2, over(group, label(labsize(small))) but this doesn't solve the problem (and doesn't look very good). thanks, Jeph * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
