Stata does not support transparency. I wish it did so that I could play
with it. At the same time, I have the niggling suspicion that
transparency is greatly overrated. If you have so much data that your
data points overlap greatly, your main need is not to change the graph
format but to supplement the graph with suitable summaries, typically
smooths of various kinds. 

It may be that supporting transparency on all platforms that Stata
supports is problematic. 

However --- 

I don't see what that's got to do with adjusting range, and -if- isn't
the answer I have to say that I evidently don't understand your original
question. Perhaps you want some kind of zooming. Basically, anything
important is documented, so if it's not evident it doesn't exist.

Thanks, Nick.

I did that, but as you know, -if- in graph is just about filtering the 
What I want is to cut off the graph as I set the range of y axis which
be not supported by
Sometimes, we need to magnify the graph as we want to see. It's a way to
off the range.

Further, it will be better for STATA to support alpha(transparency)
overlapping twoway graph.
