I do not know much about prosper or slitex, being a seminar.sty user. However, I did have a similar problem under seminar.sty with the -sjlog- environment and its long lines. The best I could manage was to use text Stata logs and to use 2 plain TeX macros \startlisting and \endlisting for verbatim listings, which I used to use in my plain TeX presentations before upgrading to LaTeX, and which spaced the lines by less than the LaTeX verbatim environment. The macro definitions are included below, just in case nobody else can think of a better solution. (The ideal solution might be to have Stata running as part of your presentation.)I am trying to include Stata output in a presentation produced using the LaTeX class prosper. The output was created using -sjlog- and I am using the Stata package stata.sty with the LaTeX environment stlog. The problem is that the horizontal lines around regression tables (produced using \HLI ) are magnified so much that they wrap over to the next line. I can manipulate the size of the fonts but not the size of the horizontal (and vertical) lines. Does anyone know any way around this? Ideally, it would be good to be able to scale the whole output (font sizes and line lengths/thicknesses) by some amount. By the way, using the slitex class, only the fonts are magnified while the lines appear to stay the same as usual.

Best wishes

Roger
