Thanks, Nick. Dropping variables will not bite since -preserve- is applied, but it is a poor programming style. A better way is to give labels to temp variables, which would have prevented them from showing up on the axis. The passthru options did occur to me when I started thinking about the color. I twisted it so it is now available for the scatter graph, for the qfit graph, and for both graphs (the twoway). The program now comes with options for saving the graph points should someone wants to make a graph on their own. An interesting extension is to make a similar graph across estimates, sort of like a graphic version of a regression table. It should be useful when CI is added. Feel free to chime in if someone has suggestions. If anyone knows how to pass the label values to the graph values (replace 1, 2, etc, with value labels on the axis), I would be interested.
