Yes I can and it's my stupid error.
Figured it out when I ran your code below.

Thanks,
Joe

Can you reproduce this with an available data set?

Are your -scatter- statements on two different lines? As you have it written
the second graph will overwrite the first graph.

Perhaps it should be something like this:

sysuse auto, clear
scatter mpg gear if foreign == 0, mcolor(red) || ///
scatter mpg gear if foreign == 1, mcolor(blue)

Hi...

OK...It might be simple, but it's driving me nuts!

I have a simple set of data

id residue x y

and I want to do a scatter plot, where I am overlaying each scatter
plot as in:

scatter y x if residue == "A", msize(vtiny) mcolor(red) ||
scatter y x if residue == "T", msize(vtiny) mcolor(blue)

If I do a "help scatter", it seems to indicate that these will
overlay each other.
But in my case, I'm getting 2-separate graphs, one next to each other.

What am I missing?

TIA,
Joe
