RE: st: RE: Drawing an arrow from textbox to point [Stata 8]
The -lcolor()- point is explained in another posting.
I can't reproduce your other error. This works for me
in 8.2 and 9.0. Is what you typed exactly equivalent?
scatter mpg weight, text(41 2650 "top car") ///
|| scatteri 41 2100 41 2500 , recast(line) ///
|| scatteri 41 2100 41.3 2200, recast(line) ///
|| scatteri 41 2100 40.7 2200, recast(line) legend(off)
