Dear all,

yesterday I stumbled across the following on an up-to-date Stata 10.1:

sysuse auto, clear
collapse price, by(rep78)
twoway (bar price rep78 if rep78 < 3, barwidth(0.8)) ///
  (bar price rep78 if rep78 >= 3, lpattern(dash) lcolor(black) ///
  fcolor(white) lwidth(medthick) barwidth(0.8))

On my machine, only the legend for the white bars has a dashed
outline, not the actual bars on the graph itself. It's the same for
any other pattern.

On the other hand,

graph bar (asis) price, over(rep78) bargap(0.2) bar(1, fcolor(white) ///
  lcolor(black) lwidth(medthick) lpattern(dash))

produces bars with a dashed outline.
Have I missed something very basic here?
