You need to use the -label()- suboption of the -plotdimensions()- option:

marginsplot, plot( , label("some" "label"))

I was wondering if anyone else has come across the following issue,
and whether there are any workarounds.

I'm trying to specify particular labels in a legend produced by
-marginsplot-, but the label() sub-option is being ignored. The labels
in the legend are the value labels for the variable foreign despite
specifying otherwise:

*begin example
sysuse auto, clear
reg price mpg i.foreign
margins foreign, at(mpg=(15(5)35))
marginsplot, legend(lab(1 "some") lab(2 "label"))
*end example

If anyone could shed any light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
