OK. Thanks for verifying. I think we should have this option in graph matrix, because one cannot plot different symbols for different group using graph matrix, and the by groups alternative is pretty useless unless the scales are the same for comparisons.

Maybe you are not so stupid afterall. I notice that -gr matrix- does not respect -norescale- in this example,either:

sysuse auto, clear
graph matrix mpg weight displacement, by(foreign, norescale) half

Look at -db graph_matrix- and observe that the -by- tab has no "Subgraph axes" button; which makes me think that it does not respect -norescale-. Compare that to -db histogram- where said button is present.

All of which we could call -graph matrix-`s prerogative if it was not for the fact that its help points the user to -help by_option- which does include the -rescale- options...

I can't seem to get the scale to remain the same for subgroups when using

graph matrix x1 x2 x3, by(y, norescale) half

That is I can't get the axis the stop scaling independently in my by groups. I must be doing something stupid.
