I assume that this question is answered in the new graphics manual, but
unfortunately my copy has not yet arrived (it was just ordered), and so I
hope you'll forgive the question. I have been putting together a few
customized schemes for specific types of work that I frequently do, and
based on the schemes in the distribution the syntax seems pretty
straightforward and easy to work with. One thing I haven't been able to
figure out, however, is how to control the left and top margins of a graph
when it is printed. I used to do this under Stata 7 with commands of the form:
translator set gph2ps lmargin 0.75
translator set gph2ps tmargin 1.10
Despite several attempts, however, I have been unable to translate these
into a form which is acceptable within the context of a scheme. If anyone
has already dealt with this issue in Stata 8 and can give me a hint, I'd
be most grateful.
in Stata 8, then you will probably be pointed in the right direction. I
think the -tmargin- and -lmargin- options are what you need.
I hope this helps.
