I just updated several chapters of a textbook, with explicit instructions from the publisher to include more graphs (for today's modern students!!! - hahaha).....

The publisher's copyright office insisted that I needed credits for the graphs because they looked so professional - all done in Stata, with a few adjustments in the graphics editor....

To echo Maarten`s sentiment, I just finished my PhD as well, and have never
wanted to stray from Stata to do beautiful graphs. Then again, I did not
need 3D graphs...

This surprises me. I just finished my dissertation, and did
almost all my graphs in Stata. I considered it flexible and
able to produce every graph I wanted in a reproducable way.
I guess I got used to the way Stata works, and thus I am
less likely to see disadvantages. Can you elobarate on what
can be done with SigmaPlot that can't be done in Stata (or
is harder in Stata)?
