I am glad it has worked out for you! But note that there is a cost to the
-plotregion- strategy. Note how the leftmost data point in the right panel
intrudes into the y-axis in this example, for instance:



*************
sysuse auto, clear
sc price weight, name(first, replace) nodraw
sc price weight, plotregion(margin(zero)) name(second, replace) nodraw
graph combine first second
*************

Many thanks Martin and Nick!  -plotregion(margin(zero))- seems to do
the trick nicely and concisely.
