I neglected to say I am using StataSE 9 on a Mac with OS 10.4 too. I do not get the axes you describe using my example below:

// a simple example of the problem:

input y x
-1 .
20 50
30 40
40 30
50 20
. -1
end

scatter y x

// which for me gives the range of the scatter plot as 0-50 on both axes
// the graph will look really weird if you replace the 1s with -1000.

I note that both :

plot y x // hah!

and

gr7 y x, twoway

give the axes labeled from 20 to 50 as I expect.

version 8.0 or 8.2 does not change the behavior from version 9.0

I'll send a note to Stata.

Hi Dave:

I went straight to your simple example below. I'm using Stata 9 on a Mac (OS 10.4) & the range on both axes went from 20 to 50. Isn't that what you wanted? I don't know why it would make a difference but I'm using the s2color scheme.
