It sounds as if you may be using the old Stata 7 style graphs (-graph7-).  If
this is the case, you may need to change the clipboard settings the way you
did in Stata 7.  To bring up the dialog to do so, you can type

	. oldgprefs

In the resulting dialog, click on the Clipboard tab and then select the scheme
that you would like to use.  After that, click OK.

Now, create a graph and click on the Graph window.  You can now either click on
Edit -> Copy Graph or simply press Ctrl+C to copy the graph to the clipboard.

Finally, in Word, or in whatever application you wish to paste the graph, click
on Edit -> Paste or press Ctrl+V to paste the graph.

If this does not work and you continue to have problems, please email Stata's
Technical Services for support.  You can send an email to
tech-support@stata.com.  We will be glad to assist.
