Hi ,

Thanks for the help. I'll try this and see if it gets me what I need. At first glance, it looks like it will.

I R, I typically create a text slide by first creating a plot that has the x axis run from 0 to 1 and the y axis run from 0 to 1. Then I suppress the axes and any labels so that I visually have a blank page but with the axes specified. I then add text at different x-y coordinates to get the slide I want. This method works well for my purposes. How can I do the same in Stata? Basically, create a blank slide with both axes running from 0 to 1, suppress the axes and add text where I want.


Something like the following will get you a basic blank page.

graph twoway scatteri 1 1, msymbol(none) yscale(off) ylabel(0(1)1) //
    xscale(off) xlabel(0(1)1)

You'd use textboxes to craft and position your text (-help textbox_options-).
I haven't really used this approach or even considered it before, and so what's
above is probably naïve and could be simplified.
