I am wondering if it is possible to edit/customize the default settings of
the -s2mono- scheme that comes with Stata 9.2.
Is there any way to edit/customize -s2mono- itself so that it incorporates
my gray scale preference (gs14) for the background and grid lines? I would
then like to name the thus edited -s2mono- something like
-s2mono_modified- and -set scheme s2mono_modified, perm-. (I know I could
specify gray scale options each time I draw a graph, but I have drawn
hundreds of graphs and will draw even more in the future. So, that
solution is not practical.)
Yes, you can. This scheme file (with the name scheme-mys2mono.scheme)
modifies the s2mono scheme.
     * scheme-mys2mono.scheme
     #include s2mono
     color background gs14
     color grid gs10
Save the scheme file in C:\ado\personal, and:
     set scheme mys2mono , permanently
You may want to experiment to get the preferred color of background and
gridlines. BTW, I doubt that your experiences are related to Windows XP
vs. Windows Vista. Did you get another printer as well? Printers (and 
toner) differ.
Hope this helps
