I am running the following in Stata to create a graph with weights:

My main problem is that this journal's editor wants 
all graphs to be monochromatic and very simple, with 
no gray backgrounds, etc. I want to include this graph 
in MS Word and when I copy it like this, it gives me a 
gray area around the graph (outside of the axes). How 
do I change this to be all white?
 
Also, when I try to change the scheme so that it's 
monochromatic, my weights become squares instead of 
circles. Do you guys know what the problem is there?
 
======================================================================
 
The unofficial -lean- schemes generate clean black-and-white
graphs. Find and install them by
 
   findit lean scheme
 
Then include in your do-file prior to the graph command:
 
   set scheme lean1
or
   set scheme lean2
 
To get circles as markers, include the -msymbol(O)- option 
to -scatter-:
 
   ... (scatter popgrowth3 sharebach70 [w=pop] , msymbol(O) ... 
 
Hope this helps
