```Thanks for the help Muhammed!

Its clear for me how to copy the graphs now.
However I still do not understand how I can get only the graphs on the
relation between the yvariable and all different xvariables.
For the moment I also also get the graphs from the xvariables on the
xvariables, what leads to a big mess in my thesis.
But if I regress the xvariables on the yvariables seperately, I do not
controll for the other x variables. So i think I can not do that.
Do you know how I can get only the graphs relevant to the yvariable?
What command should I use?
