clarify further comments.]

Thanks, Scott -- I had misinterpreted what -byopts- was designed to
do, so I had not explored that option. -byopts(title())- resolves my
first question above. I appreciate your or anyone else's input on
aspects of these remaining questions:
On Jun 15, 2006, at 12:27 PM, I wrote:
For 1. and 2. take a look at -byopts- option and the axis title can
be added at the end.
1. How does one add a title to the whole plot?
2. How does one change the text of and/or remove the legend and
3. How does one change/control the axis labels and titles? In
particular, I want to either change or delete the text that reads
"step" by default beneath the final row of subplots.
irf graph irf, irf(test_irf) byopts(title(My Title) note("") ///
legend(off)) xtitle(Years) ytitle(My ytitle)
2. -byopts(legend())- seems to support only a subset of the options
of -legend-: basically, I have been able to get -off- and -pos()- to
work, but none of the other options of -legend- I have tried (e.g., -
order()-, -stack-, -size()-, -symx()-). Is this a "feature"? Or am
I missing something?
3. The -xtitle- option (*outside* of -byopts-) addresses in part
what I was after in the third question. However, -xtitle- only
applies to the whole final row of subplots, as does -xlabel-. Is
there a way to modify the x-axes on the other rows? (Or the y-axes
for any column other than the first?)
4. An additional question, if I may be so bold: I would like to
change the subtitles at the top of each subplot in a way that still
conveys which response and impulse are plotted. For example, instead
of "test_irf, lconsumption, lincome", I would like the (1,2) subplot
to read, say, "Response of log(Y) to a log(C) shock". The -subtitle-
option will allow one to change the text at the top of each subplot,
but I haven't figured out how to specify the response and impulse
variables within this option. Perhaps if it were possible to extract
specific elements of r(response) and r(impulse)...? Also, I had
hoped that labeling the variables would change what was shown in the
subtitles, but (apparently) to no avail.
Thanks again for your assistance.
