I'm running PROC SGSCATTER under 9.2. The files created by ODS PDF have the TITLE and BY lines appearing both at the top of the page and within the output area. Does anyone know of a way of removing the TITLE and BY lines that are outside of the output area?
I see the behavior that you are experiencing, but am not sure how to change it. ODS RTF and ODS HTML both have an option (NOGTITLE) which allows you to select whether the title will be outside the graph area or inside (GTITLE) the graph area. However, that option is not available for ODS PDF.
If I run a similar example to ODS RTF with this invocation:
ods rtf file='c:\temp\scatterB.rtf' nogtitle;
...then the titles only appear once -- outside the graph area.
There was a problem in the first phase of 9.2 with sg procs and titles when run with PDF but that problem has been fixed for the second phase of 9.2. This next phase is due to ship out soon as far as I know.
A simple test like this will work correctly in 9.2 phase 2.
ods listing close;
ods pdf file="temp.pdf";
Title "this is a title";
proc sgscatter data=sashelp.class;
ods pdf close;
