Has anyone developed a way or method to incorporate LaTeX formatted text into a Stata graph? It would be great if the Stata graph editor had the capability to generate LaTeX formatted annotations. For Mac users, I have in mind something along the lines of the program LaTeXiT that allows one to add snippets of LaTeX text to Powerpoint or Keynote presentations.

My way is: Exporting the Stata graph as an eps, then using a .tex file like the one posted below. This file is then typeset by the following sequence of commands aslo posted below (in TeXShop, a Mac-Frontend for LaTeX, I do this via an "engine file" epsoverlay)

If anyone is interested, I could provide more details how to prepare your system to do all this. It assumes that the command epspdf exists, for instance. Of course this is not very convenient, at first sight, but works for me. It is even possible to use pstricks ...
