Sorry, I should have mentioned:  that does work on Windows; as so:

. graph export mygraph.eps
. ! ps2pdf mygraph.eps

assuming you have ghostscript installed.

I've never used (and wasn't aware of) the pdf export in Stata for Windows.
   If you don't have time to wait for the response that Nick Winter gets, perhaps you can export the graph to ps or eps and then use a command line utility to batch convert your graphics to pdf (?).  In MacOSX, I'd use something like 'gs', and there appears to be a Windows version available:

I, too, noticed this and have corresponded with tech support about this, and was told that the question has been passed along to the relevant developer.  So perhaps this will be changed in a future update.

Best,

Eric,

Unfortunately that does not seem to alter the font in exported pdfs on
Windows 7.

This seems like an unfortunate limit for the pdf export command on Windows.
