Probably the best, maybe the only, approach is to use -scatteri- to make your own line(s) wherever you need them:

. sysuse auto

. gr twoway scatter mpg price ||
scatteri 20 5000 40 5000, c(l) msym(none) legend(off)


Stata draws the plots from left to right, so you can reverse them to put the line behind the scatter points.

Hello,
I'm wondering if there's a way to display "xline" over only a specified range, i.e. from the point on a curve to the point of x-intercept?
