AW: st: Catplot (ssc) labelsize in scheme? Stata 11 |

Nick, I can change the value of gsize label from vsmall or huge, but everytime the labsize in the graph medsmall. My scheme is a modification of s2color. Changing labsize manually under var2opts works perfectly... My code uses the following options: percent stack asyvars scheme l1title legend and ytitle I cannot see why these would intervene into the scheme... Puzzled...

Everytime I call -catplot- (ssc) the labelsize is medsmall. My programming skills are zero but in the catplot.ado I cannot find a specification of labsize; so in contrast to my earlier question, I think I am able to control the labelsize in a scheme.
