Hi Statalist, I'm joining the list again after a period of absence. For some reason, I don't seem to be able to send directly to statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu, but if I reply to a post, then it seems to get there. My original message was as follows: Hi Statalist, Is there any reason why Stata won't let you draw a graph whose y-axis' range is less than the actual range of the data? Is there a way to get round this? The motivation comes from doing a graph where there is one group which has a articularly large y value. If I graph it with the other groups, then all the other groups will be very small, and their relative heights not very distinguishable. If I can focus on the other groups and let the outlying group 'goes off the scale', that's clearly quite a good device to have. In fact, the problem can't be overcome even if I artificially set the outlying y value to the maximum of the y range, because the top will look different, particularly when I want to graph error intervals. Thanks for your help. Tim * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
