Dear All

Michael N. Mitchell Data Management Using Stata - http://www.stata.com/bookstore/dmus.html A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics - http://www.stata.com/bookstore/vgsg.html Stata tidbit of the week - http://www.MichaelNormanMitchell.com p.s. Many thanks for the kind comments on VGSG! On 2010-06-11 3.03 AM, Nick Cox wrote:

This isn't (meant to be) contentious, but the thread does underline that none of half-a-dozen experienced Stata users knew the answer just like that, including Michael Mitchell who has written an entire book on Stata graphics. (I was asleep, but I wouldn't have known either.) But the solution is documented and the tail statement in "yvaroptions(over_subopts) allows you to specify over_subopts for the yvars. This is seldom done." appears to be quite correct. There is a fine line between answering all possible questions and bloating the documentation further. Sometimes the longer your help files, the less people are inclined to read through them. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Kieran McCaul it's really buried away, isn't it. Changing the look of the category axis is really something I would expect people would want to do. Perhaps the Graphics Manual could be updated to show a few examples. * * 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/
