> Hello,

> I am using the -twoway connected y x, by(var)- command to generate a graph
with 9 individual plots (3x3).  That all works fine, but now I am trying to
add xlines to each of the 9 plots, where the lines are drawn at different
values for each plot.  Is this possible?  Looking at the axis_selection
section of the manual does not seem to help when using the by option.

One way is to save each graph and then use -graph combine-

Example:

preserve

sysuse uslifeexp, clear
 line le_male year,  xline(1939)  saving(male)
 line le_female year, xline(1956) saving(female)
 line le_male year,  xline( 1945)  saving(male2)
 line le_female year, xline(1963) saving(female2)

 gr combine male.gph female.gph male2.gph female2.gph

erase male.gph
erase female.gph
erase male2.gph
erase female2.gph

restore

Hope this helps,
Scott
