st: Option -scale()- with pie charts |

Hello Statalisters, I am trying to make text smaller on my pie-chart, because the legend occupies most of the graph. However, both Stata 9 and Stata 10 (Windows, two different computers) rejected option -scale()- of graph pie command. At the same time scale() works fine with the -twoway- graphs. The online help (Stata 10) says: ********************* quote ******************************************************* [G] std_options -- Options for use with graph construction commands Syntax std_options description --------------------------------------------------------------------- scale(#) resize text and markers ... Description The above options are allowed with command manual entry ------------------------------------------------------------ ... graph pie [G] graph pie ********************* end of quote ************************************************** After some tracing, the problem seems to be in piegraph_g.makegraph, which parses the options and leaves -scale()- unparsed and thus cries with an error. Here is a way to reproduce the problem: sysuse auto graph pie, over(rep78) scale(0.5) Here is a workaround I have found to this problem: sysuse auto graph pie, over(rep78) graph display, scale(0.5) I believe that this is a bug, because: 1. scale() must work with this type of graph 2. it does not work 3. there is nothing special in the design of the graph which would make this infeasible, and the workaround shows this. I wonder if someone could confirm that this is a bug, or am I doing something wrong here? Is there any better solution to minimize flicker on the screen, when building many graphs? Thank you, and have a nice weekend, All.
