I can get everything I want, except for labeling the y-axes for plots 2 and 3. The following demonstrates the problem: I want the volume labels (0 and 10,000) and the closing price change (-50, 0, and 50) to be on top of each other, rather than having the latter on a separate axis to the right of the former. * begin example sysuse sp500 gr twoway connected high date, yaxis(1) /// ysca(ra(500) axis(1)) /// || bar volume date, yaxis(2) /// ysca(alt ra(200000) axis(2)) /// ylab(0 10000, angle(horiz) grid labsize(small) axis(2)) /// || bar change date, yaxis(3) /// ysca(alt ra(-250 600) axis(3)) /// ylab(-50 0 50, angle(horiz) labsize(small) axis(3)) /// legend(off) * end example Am I missing something obvious? I messed with creating the three plots separately and using -graph combine- to put them together in a single column, but the different widths of the y labels across the plots means that the x-axes don't line up with each other, even with the -xcommon- option. Something like: * begin second example gr twoway connected high date, xsca(off) /// graphregion(margin(b 0)) name(one, replace) gr twoway bar volume date, ysca(alt) xsca(off) /// ylab(0 10000, angle(horiz) grid labsize(small)) /// graphregion(margin(t 0 b 0)) /// name(two, replace) gr twoway bar change date, ysca(alt) /// ylab(-50 0 50, angle(horiz) labsize(small)) /// graphregion(margin(t 0)) /// name(three, replace) gr combine one two three, col(1) xcommon * end second example Any thoughts? -- -------------------------------------------------------------- Nicholas Winter 434.924.6994 t Assistant Professor 434.924.3359 f Department of Politics nwinter@virginia.edu e University of Virginia faculty.virginia.edu/nwinter w S385 Gibson Hall, South Lawn Map: http://tinyurl.com/uvaSLmap * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/* * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
