As Martin pointed out, I recorded the graph editor changes (-help
graph_editor-) and then used the .grec files to retrieve the commands.

I believe I learned about -gr_edit- on Statalist from Michael Blasnik
(http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2007-07/msg00616.html).

Nick, after providing needed commentary to my reply, asked "An open
question is whether there is another way to do it via the command
language " (http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/lwgate/STATALIST/archives/statalist.0904/date/article-818.html)
.

This can be done by fixing the size of the graphs with the -fxsize()-
option (-help graph combine-) since the graphs will be of unequal size
due to the labels of the first graph.

Example:

clear all
sysuse auto
set scheme lean1
egen PriceCat=cut(price), at(3000 6000 16000)

graph hbox turn if P == 3000, over(head) over(fore) fxsize(100)
ytitle("") t1(3000) name(gr2,replace)
graph hbox turn if P == 6000, over(head, label(nolabel))
over(fore,label(nolabel)) ytitle("") fxsize(75) t1(6000)
name(gr3,replace)
graph combine gr2 gr3, row(1) imargin(zero) b1(Turn Circle(ft.))
