Oops, Dave, I goofed.  It wasn't until I read your comment about replacing the 1s with -1000 that I realized those -1 were data points.  I now get the same graph you describe.  I checked out plot & gr7 & also get the same as you.  Guess Stata hasn't been fully consistent over the years with respect to this.

>>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.
