That's a very helpful reference to keep questions clear and specific. That web page gives two graphs, and (modulo cosmetic details) both are obtainable directly via -anovaplot-. The only twist is that the -anova- to precede it is simpler than the -anova- used as example. use http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/examples/kirk/spf2-4, clear anova y a b a*b anovaplot anovaplot, scatter(ms(none)) anovaplot b a anovaplot b a, scatter(ms(none)) The moral that the plots you want may pertain to a simpler ANOVA than that you fit is valuable, and I'll build this example into the next revision of the help for -anovaplot-.
