st: axis layout boxplots
I'm using Stata 8 SE and have made several boxplots. Next, I would
like to change the thickness of the lines of the graphs (for larger prints).
I was able to change the thickness of the lines in the boxplot itself, as well
as the line thickness of the y axis. Strangely enough, I can't seem to get
the same result for the x-axis where the labels are placed.
As an example, the command line for the variation in earnings between
graph box earnings, medtype(cline) medline(lcolor(black) lwidth(thick)) over
(sector, label(labsize(large))) horizontal ytitle(, size(large))
scheme(sj) ylabel(0 .5
1, nogrid) yscale(range(0 1) lw(thick)) box(1,blw(thick))
The two latter commands change the thickness of the y-axis and the box itself.
For the x-axis I've tried (among others) adding xscale. I then get the error
"xscale(lw(thick)) not allowed, xaxis1 does not exist"
And in the help files of "help graph_box" it says:
"Ignore the x*() options; they are irrelevant in the case of box plots."
Does anybody know if this means the line thickness of the xscale
cannot be changed?
Perhaps there is a simple solution, but I wasn't able to find it in the FAQ, the
archives, nor the help files.
Any advice is greatly appreciated,
With kind regards
