Dear Statalisters, Kieran's question is a good one. Martine's answer may solve Kieran's current problem, though only partially answers the question. "ensure that the LENGTH of the x-axis is the same" I have no easy solution to do this and ask how to do this when the graphs to combine do not have A) a common x-axis or B) perhaps (I did not try this) span different ranges of a common axis or C) carry different axis-titles (e.g. some with and some without such titles), which can affect the proportion of space given to the graph and axis/margins and so length of the axis. A more comprehensive solution than -common axis- would be welcome though I have not found one myself, and like Kieran have in the past had to play about a lot to get what I want. Does a solution exist? Can one be created? With much appreciation and many thanks, Geoff.

Suppose I have four graphs that I combine to look like this: http://i37.tinypic.com/314wkfb.jpg My question is: is there an easy way to ensure that the length of the x-axis is the same in all four graphs when they are combined. I can probably fiddle around with margin gaps until I get them right, but is there something a little easier than that?
