Dear list,

The upper bound is ignored, when I make a histogram of a variable
containing only negative values and I want to expand the x axis, but
the upper bound is still negative. In the example below I expected
the x-axis to run from -60 to -10, but it runs only from -60 to -30.
What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks,
Maarten


***example***
sysuse auto
gen minturn = -turn
hist minturn, xscale(range(-60 -10))
  //x axis runs from -60 to -30 not -60 to -10
