James Muller <james.muller@reventlov.com> is having trouble with a LaTeX macro from stata.sty: > I'm trying to get the latex style stata.sty, available on the UCLA > pages, working in a 10pt fontsize document, preferably without too > much hastle in modifying low-level tex commands in my documents or in > the latex style definiton (stata.sty). > > The problem is in the package stata.sty assuming the standard Stata > journal latex format, which is in 11pt. > > So far as I can see everything is working perfectly well except the > command \HLI, which is the counterpart of Stata's SCML horizontal rule > command.

The simplest solution I could come up with is to redefine the \DASH macro, right after \usepackage{stata}. Here is the altered definition of \DASH: \def\DASH{{\vrule width\stxwidth height\stmtdepth depth-\stmbdepth}} The \HLI{} macro makes repeated calls to \DASH. The original \DASH would allow breaks between calls; the above no longer does this. We will look into updating the Stata Press LaTeX files to prevent this from happening in the future. --Jeff jpitblado@stata.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
