Greetings

I hope that people would forgive the shameless plug, but I would also suggest "A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics, 2nd Ed" (http://www.stata.com/bookstore/vgsg.html) see for learning about and solving these kinds of graph problems. For example, the issue of controlling legends in combination with -by()- is covered in sections 9.8 and 9.9.

Best regards,

Michael N. Mitchell

The very first thing you want to do in these cases is fire up the graph
editor and see whether it can be done at all. If so, you can either -record-
the sequence of commands that led you to your desired result, and look at
the resulting .grec-file in a text editor, or try to find the answer in the
help files. I did the latter in your case...

Thanks Martin.

It works perfect (of course). (I´ve spent hours on this!!!)

Betreff: st: Text size in graphs

Dear listers

I am struggling with getting larger text to fit en OH-slide.

Does anyone know how to get larger text in a legend. Seems to be complicated
with the need to resize the legend-box to?

Also, I´m doing two graphs side-by-side (-by(sex)-). How do I get a larger
font for the sex-labels (boys, girls) that are shown on top of the graph?
