Can I Wrap a Title in the ODS KEYLEGEND Statement?

I have a long TITLE for a KEYLEGEND statement so it would be sensible to wrap it to multiple lines to make the wide legend narrower. Is there a way to do that? (I'm using ACROSS=1 because that's most reasonable with this graph.)

 

I'm using the up-to-date version of the University Edition.

 

Thanks for your help,

Re: Can I Wrap a Title in the ODS KEYLEGEND Statement?

The simple answer is No.  KEYLEGEND in the SGPLOT procedure does not provide this feature.

 

However, if this is important, and you are willing to take the next step, you can use GTL to do what you want.

First, save the GTL template generated by SGPLOT to a sas file using the TMPLOUT option.  Then, update the GTL code and replace the DISCRETELEGEND statement with a LAYOUT GRIDDED, with two rows.  Now, place an ENTRY with the text you want as the title in the first row, and the legend in the 2nd row.

 

layout gridded / rows=2 columns=1;

  entry "title of the legend";

  discretelegend ....;

endlayout;
