I encountered this issue -- that -grc1leg- does not work fully with graphs that were created with the -by()- option -- recently. I've hacked away at -grc1leg- to create -grc1legwby- (GRaph Combine 1 LEGend With BY), that will work for these plots. It also works with plots that do not use -by-, so it can replace -grc1leg-.

I've submitted it for posting to SSC. In the mean time you can get it from my web site:

net from http://faculty.virginia.edu/nwinter/progs

Perhaps this command also wins some sort of award for its terrible name...

All best,
Nick Winter

Hi,
I have the same problem as Ricardo.
I tried using the -grc1leg- command, but I can not figure out how to use it.
I always end up with all the legends for every graph and an additional one
from using -grc1leg-.
Thus my questions is: How do I create one single legend?

The code I use is something like this:

************** Beginn example ****************
sysuse xtline1, clear

* Creating two more variable to mimic my data setup
gen cal_yesterday = L.calories
bysort person: gen first_half_year = (_n<  175)

* Draw three scater plots
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 1, ///
         by(first_half_year, title("Tess")) ///
         name(g1)
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 2, ///
         by(first_half_year, title("Sam")) ///
         name(g2)
scatter cal_yesterday calories day if person == 3, ///
         by(first_half_year, title("Arnold")) ///
         name(g3)

* combine the three scatter plots
grc1leg g1 g2 g3
*************** End example *****************


Kind regards
Oliver

You might try the user-written command -grc1leg- (since 1's often look like l's, that's "grc" + the numeral 1 + "leg").

Subject: st: graph combine&   single legend

I want to combine 4 graphs, each a plot of three lines, using -graph combine-. Because the legend for the graphs are all the same, I would like to have a single legend at the bottom. When I use -legend(off)- for three of the graphs, and leave the legend for the 4th graph, this 4th graph is smaller than the rest when I combine them. Any solutions will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Ricardo.
