Hi Sungbok:

I didn't imply anything about your capacity for understanding the issue, I simply asked for more clarification on things like your version of Stata, operating system, an example of your code/data, and a better description of what happens when you combine graphs.   

You're obviously free to post technical issues to Statalist, I was suggesting that this issue might be something that Stata tech support can more readily resolve, hence the reason I referenced a webpage with their direct contact information.

Again, if you post some more details about your issue, someone here might have some ideas on how to resolve it; someone with a similar set-up may be able to replicate your issue;  or someone may have encountered a similar problem before and know how to fix it.  However, as it stands, your description of your issue is unclear.  Section 3 of the FAQ may give you some helpful tips on effectively posting on Statalist (http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html).

Cheers, 

Eric

>> Are you saying the combining 10 graphs causes your Stata to freeze or crash or that you have to hit the break button for some reason (e.g., the loop not breaking)?  Have you tried combining a smaller number of graphs to see if there is some threshold where your Stata starts freezing...e.g., try it with 2 graphics in the loop, then 4, and so on.
