Greetings Statalisters.

I'm having difficulty getting my legend labels to work with -marginsplot, addplot(scatter blahhh)-. No matter what I try I am unable to change the labels in the ADDPLOT portion.  

I saw Nick Winter's and Scott Merryman's replies to David Muller's post in November {Subject: st:marginsplot ignores label() sub-option in legend} that recommended:

-marginsplot, plot( , label("some" "label"))- and -marginsplot, legend(order(3 "some" 4 "label"))-

I can verify that those indeed change the labels for the marginsplot itself, but I can't seem to make that code alter the labels for whatever was added with the addplot option.

I've tried putting legend(lab()) inside the addplot but it gets ignored.  I've tried using the same outside of the addplot() but that doesn't work either.  I've tried putting legend options inside the plotopts() and again, no success.

How can we gain control of the legend labels for the addplot portion of marginsplot??

Thanks in advance!
