Hi Martin, Thanks for the article. However, as the article says, Stata determines the minimum range of the graph according to the range of the data. It remains impossible to set the range of the graph to be smaller than that of the data.

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.
