st: graph hbox Y, by(something noiyaxes) over(grp2) over(grp1) |

The artificial example below creates a "by" plot (two plots, in a row) with a superfluous row of labels for the levels of -foreign- and of -headroom- between the left and right graphs. I'd like to eliminate the second set of labels, that is, those for the plot on the right, and smash the two plots together with very little space between them. In particular, the labels "Domestic" and "Foreign" should appear only once on the entire "by" plot. The -noixaxes- and -noiyaxes- options seem ineffectual with -graph hbox-, as does -style(compact)- . Is there an simple or elegant solution? clear all sysuse auto set scheme lean1 pause on egen PriceCat=cut(price), at(3000 6000 16000) * All axes and labels are printed: graph hbox turn, by(PriceCat, noiylabel noiyaxes rows(1)) over(headroom) over(foreign) pause Enter q to continue, BREAK to halt. * The horizontal axis labels are not printed, which is the opposite of what I want: graph hbox turn, by(PriceCat, noixlabel noixaxes rows(1)) over(headroom) over(foreign) pause Enter q to continue, BREAK to halt. * Theoretically a workaround would consist in making two plots, the second one without axis labels for "headroom" and "foreign". * Then one could use -graph combine-. * But the following removes the information from the horizontal, i.e., the wrong, axis: graph hbox turn if PriceCat==3000, over(headroom) over(foreign) ylabel(, nolabels) pause Enter q to continue, BREAK to halt. * and the following generates an error. Apparently the vertical axis is not considered an axis at all in a boxplot: graph hbox turn if PriceCat==3000, over(headroom) over(foreign) xlabel(, nolabels) Thanks for any insights Jacob A.
