I realized I was using an old version of catplot, hence I believe this is why a call for the var1opts returned an error. I tried to update it manually, but I'm afraid I ended up with two versions:

. which catplot
c:\ado\plus\c\catplot.ado
*! 2.0.0 NJC 28 May 2010
*! 1.1.2 NJC 11 February 2004

My version of Stata is not web-aware (for security reasons the machine where Stata is installed on have no internet connection). So what is the correct procedure to remove a user-written command and download and install a new one? (I can download from another machine and copy files to Stata machine).

Thanks,
Thomas

Like this?


. sysuse auto,clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. catplot rep78, over(fore, label(labsize(*1.5))) var1opts(label(labsize(*.5)))

I am using the user written command catplot (N.J. Cox) which I understand is
also a wrapper for graph bar.  I was looking for a way to modify the label
size of the categorical labels, just like ylabel(, labsize(vsmall)) does for
the y axis.  I understand in graph bar one would normally use the over
suboption:
over(something, labsize(vsmall)), but how about catplot, is it possible?

Thanks,
