Line for the server... " Why are there no -(lfit y x)- and -(lfitci y x)- options with -graph matrix?" I would not call these options. The -twoway- family allows you to add additional types of -graph-s to an existing one. -gr matrix- is not part of this family, so systematically I would not expect there to be an -add plots- capability. -hist-, for instance, does allow that, so in future what you call for may be desirable. I do note though that -gr matrix- already takes a long time to draw its plot so allowing additional plots would certainly make that worse...

I've been playing around with Nick's solution with some of my own data, and it turns out to be quite useful, especially when I switch on the -if e(sample)- option. One question for StataCorp: Why are there no -(lfit y x)- and -(lfitci y x)- options with -graph matrix? If I'm not missing anything obvious, this would make -graph matrix- even more useful than it already is. -- Clive Nicholas [Please DO NOT mail me personally here, but at <clivenicholas@hotmail.com>.
