st: Combining two graphs with the same y-axis but with/without xlabels (50% solved) |

Dear Statalisters, I am combining two graphs with the same y-axis. The right graph will have value labels and ticks on the x-axis, but the one on the left other won't. (I realize this sounds strange but there's a good reason.) I encountered two problems, one of which I have solved. * (1) Aligning the y-axsis. -graph combine- supports the use of a common y-axis but the axis don't align in the final output: the left axis extends further down, presumably because of the space savings from omitting the valuelabels and ticks. My solution is to use an empty -xtitle- along with white labels and invisible ticks. The result is below and alings as intended. I am unclear why -labcolor(none)- produces black-colored labels when it should really be invisible, but I can live with using white. * (2) I would like to limit the width of the left-hand graph, so that the final output is dominated by the right-hand graph. I can use -aspectratio- to make the left-hand side graph slimmed but -graph combine- will still give it half of the space in the final output. Any ideas on how to solve item (2) are much appreciated.
