I am writing a manuscript with a large number of figures.  These figures
vary greatly in size and complexity.  I would like to define my Stata
scheme in such a way that the point size of text remains fairly constant
regardless of the size of the graph.  The scheme command
   gsize axis_title  medium
creates an axis title that maintains a constant relative size:  If I
double the size of the graph, I double the size of my axis title.  Is
there any way that I can set the point size to, say, 9 point regardless
of the absolute size of the graph? 
I don't think it can be done automatically, but I found the scale() option very useful to obtain reasonably sized markers and texts. See [G] scale_option.
