Thanks.  This could come in handy.  Looking at the region_options help file I see that the "correct" way to do what I want is probably

-scatter lexp gnppc, yscale(nofextend) xscale(nofextend) 

and use the plotregion(margin()) option for the padding.

For such "quick and dirty" operations, the -immediate- -twoway-s can be
handy. Try:



*************
tw (pci 2 0 4 0)

Betreff: RE: st: RE: bug with -noextend- option?

Spoke too soon!  I guess it doesn't do what I want.  Thanks for the
suggestion, though.

I'll find a work-around (maybe stretch a line between some hidden fake
data), but here's what I'm trying to do: Suppose I want to extend the range
of the graph to give the data a little more, but only want the axis to
extend from the min to max data values.  With nofextend the line still
covers the range of the graph, beyond the max and min of the data.

I still don't understand what noextend is doing.  Using noextend with some
data I get lines that don't extend through all labels, and with some other
data it produces an axis line that continues through the inner and outer
graph regions.  Maybe there's a logic to it that I'm missing?  In any case,
as I said, I think I'll try to find a work-around.

Thank you, Scott.  This does what I want.

Try this:

-scatter lexp gnppc, yscale(nofextend) xscale(nofextend)
ylabel(minmax) xlabel(minmax)-

description correctly, -noextend-  should make the line extend as far as the
axis labels (I am inferring from the description for -extend-).  Setting
yscale(range()) or xscale(range()) don't seem to help.
