There is no standard way to do this. A reasonable approximation can be obtained with overlaid text, e.g.
sysuse auto
scatter weight price, text(1850 -270 "\" 1800 -270 "\", size(*1.4) orient(vertical))

Subject: st: RE: RE: yscale/range to plot
Dear David and Nick (and others)
That was very helpful about the yla command to specifiy the y-scale.
I forgot to ask, is there any way in which I can ask STATA to insert a line
or two lines (such as //) on the y-axis, to show that I have re-scaled the
graph - ie i have gone for a changed axis such that it starts at 0.8 rather
than at 0- so the reader knows straightaway that the axis was modified.
Many thanks
Nita
