RE: st: RE: Modifying -irf graph- output
Regarding the legend options, a -legend()- option inside the -by()- will
alter its position, while a -legend()- option outside the -by()- will alter
its contents. For example:
irf graph irf, irf(test_irf) byopts(title(My Title) yrescale ///
xrescale note("") legend(pos(3) )) legend(stack col(1) ///
order(1 "95% CI" 2 "IRF") symx(*.5) size(vsmall)) xtitle("Year")
Regarding the -xtitle- , are not all the titles the same in such a graph?
To have individualized subtitles, I think you will have to create the graphs
individually and then combine them or perform surgery on varirf_graph.ado.
