Pas possible.  I think Stata takes the work of Tukey (1977) "Exploratory Data Analysis", & William Cleveland's books, Visualizing Data (1993) &  "The Elements of Graphing Data" (1994), as state-of-the-art.  You will not find any fill patterns in Cleveland's books (at least that I can find).  With a good printer, the various greys should be distinguishable on a graph.  I would be interested in hearing what others have to say on this.


>Neither menus nor manuals seem to describe how bar fill colors in a hbar graph can be replaced with patterns (such as diagonal lines, small squares, etc.) that are easy to distinguish from one another in a black and white setting. Any suggestions out there?
