Thanks for pointing this one out again Nick (missed it earlier apparently), it looks like a handy tool especially for those have-a-quick-look-what's-in-it graphs. These are made very often during analysis, before reporting final results. Because of the frequency of use the elegancy of the command makes a lot of sense here and is an improvement if one wants to learn people to use Stata by using the command-box.
