RE: st: Can we change tick level for Y-axis?
This is explained and documented under -axis label options-.
In the manual, see the section [G] axis_label_options; on-line
whelp axis label options
in an -update-d Stata.
One key is know where to look is to realise that tick options
are options like -xtick()- and -ytick()- but labelled tick options
are options like -xlabel()- and -ylabel()-. Stata's been consistent
on that since the late 1980s.
