I agree with you that this is a problem. However, I have been able to get
around Stata's limitation occasionally by:

(1) saving my individual by-ten-categories graphs as ps files,
(2) turning them all into A SINGLE pdf file using a program like Adobe's
RunFilEx.ps.txt,
(3) and then using Adobe Distiller to print that resulting pdf file into a
new file with multiple pages per sheet.

I realize that this is not a very good solution in the long run, but it's
been useful to me from time to time.

Yes this is a good solution and it may meet my paper's deadline! I'll use Acrobat's Illustrator and Distiller with those settings. I may be able to reshape my data too, such that I am graphing fewer sersets, e.g.,

graph tw (scatter y1 x if ...) (scatter y2 x if ...)

is 2 sersets

where

reshape ...

graph tw (scatter y1 y2 x)

might be considered one serset. I'm not sure of this, however.

Thanks!
