. I isolated this problem to the -gr tw function- command for Stata tech-support as well, and sent an email earlier. The default is 300 points via -tw function-, but even n(1000) still quivers with sparks. I have also felt that line pattern dash seems uneven relative to a solid pattern, and sometimes looks like rice have been glued to the screen by a child. In any case I've sent a request in to Stata Corp tech support. -Dave > Dave wrote about Stata on OS X but I have a similar observation about > Stata on Windows, specifically concerning -twoway function-. > > A y=x line drawn with -twoway function- is not as straight as a line > drawn with -twoway scatter, connect-.
