Can I please echo Horea's concern about this limitation in Stata and have this added this to the Stata wishlist? I had rather hoped that this particular issue would have been resolved for Stata 9. I agree that -stsatrisk- is a useful package which I use often, but it is limited in its presentation and its graphs do need manual manipulation before they can be used more formally. Working in clinical trials in cancer, Kaplan-Meier plots are our bread and butter.
