Often enough I find myself making ad hoc graphs, by which I mean graphs
Read Vince Wiggins' London talk. A Stata 8 graph indeed carries within
it all of the underlying data used in its construction (which you may
recover as Stata variables), and may be reworked as you wish by
changing various elements of the styles used to produce the graph.
that are not a part of a saved do or ado file. Sometimes I come back to
those graphs and want to alter something. However, the graph statement
longer exists, and I may not even know which .dta file was used. Would
be possible to have the graph program save such information? One way I
been doing this, but it seems awkward, is to save a dta file with just
variables I need, then attach the graph statement as a note.
Does anyone have any other suggestions or comments on this idea?
