Hi all

I am using layout gridded to merge the legends to get the following inside the graph

Capture.PNG

Iam using the following code

Layout Gridded / halign=left valign=bottom border=yes;

       entry halign=left "drug";

   mergedlegend '1' 'a' /border=no;
   mergedlegend '2' 'b' /border=no;
   mergedlegend '3' 'c' /border=no;

        endlayout;

How can I align properly, you see blue line is center as it is shorter and red line is longer! I need to align this properly as it looks awkward now!!

First, you should get the right merging if the data is grouped.

Second, if you must do your own grid, try Layout GlobalLegend.  It tries to combine multiple legends in a good way.

Please see the GTL doc for the details.

What are the Formats associated with the variables that are producing XX, YYYYY and ZZZ? I would try making sure that the lengths of those variables's formats are all the same (longest).

The picture displayed doesn't really look like the blue is shorter just that the whole contents of line and label are centered and the text is shorter so the left and right displayed area are more towards the center.

Have you tried haling = left on each of merged items?

There are no format associated I just give it in the legendlabel statement Please see below

scatterplot x=chg1 y=pct1 / markerattrs=graphdata1(size=8.5 symbol=trianglefilled)  name='a' legendlabel="XX";

    stepplot    x=chg1 y=pct1 / lineattrs=graphdata1(pattern=solid  thickness=1) name='1' legendlabel="XX"*/;

    scatterplot x=chg2 y=pct2 / markerattrs=graphdata2(size=8.5 symbol=circlefilled) name='b' legendlabel="YYYYY";

    stepplot    x=chg2 y=pct2 / lineattrs=graphdata2(pattern=shortdash  thickness=1)   name='2' legendlabel="YYYYY";

  scatterplot x=chg3 y=pct3 / markerattrs=graphdata3(size=8.5 symbol=SquareFilled) name='c' legendlabel="ZZZ";

    stepplot    x=chg3 y=pct3 / lineattrs=graphdata3(pattern=mediumdash  thickness=1)   name='3' legendlabel="ZZZ";
